2000 Sandeman Vau Vintage Port, DOC Douro
Oh yes, it's that time of year for Vintage Port. Fruit and tannin, so concentrated it makes your eyes bug out . . . oh yes, long live Oporto.
Sandeman's one of those standby's, a company in business for so long that no thought has to be made off the shelf. You buy, and trust that you won't be poisoned. This one, with but 8 years of bottle age, shows a deeply purple colour, and intense fruit aromas. Good, crushy berries, minerals. Concentrated and everything I want in a young vintage Port. Got me sooooo buzzed, all love, all love.
