2009 Niepoort Vintage Port
Grape Type: Port Blend
92(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May 2012
Saturated medium ruby. Inviting, slightly high-toned aromas of cassis, black cherry, violet, cardamom, star anise, licorice and mint. Penetrating and aromatic in the mouth, with floral high notes lifting the primary, intense blackberry flavor. Offers a lush texture but also terrific definition and grip. Very silky, concentrated port with outstanding energy and a light touch for the vintage (not to mention for its 20% alcohol). Lay this one down. From vines more than 100 years of age, according to Burgundy fanatic Dirk Niepoort, who prefers this vintage to his 2007.
