Niepoort 1997 Coheita Tawny Port 750ml

Description

 

"Lots of range here, featuring flavors of red currant preserves and cherries jubilee, with hints of toffee and toasted sesame. The silky, racy structure is fully absorbed. This shows a high-pitched, perfumy note that runs through the finish. Distinctive and hard not to dig into now, but the precision should carry this for a while longer." Wine Spectator 95 Points

"The 1997 Colheita Tawny Port was bottled in 2016 with a long cork. Delectable, but wonderfully refined and elegant, this is--roughly--a 20 year tawny that doesn't hit you over the head with power and depth, but has complexity and length to spare. The molasses on the finish, with just a hint of treacle, gives this layers and intensity of flavor, but it always seems youthful, too--sometimes, more so than the 2005 bottling reviewed this issue. Going less for the "big bang" and more for silky sensuality, this is one to linger with and contemplate. It's lovely as well as lively. Pricing was not available as of this writing."
