Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage Port, 2012

BOTTLED 2016

Warm jammy brambles with some chocolate and chilli pepper aromas (strangely) and some fresh cherry on the nose. The palate has a nice spice up front, a lot of tannin – soft, but very firm – and then the alcohol I remember from Niepoort’s LBV comes out. A lot of savoury flavours on the end, with a warm spice coming out. Nice. 88pts (February 2017)
