Strabwerries, dried apricot, and other dried stone fruits jump out of this rich glass. The tannins and acidity are still noticable and complete the wine. Decant carefully — there's lots of sediment.
This 1999 port is both brilliant and in its drinking prime. As the Sandeman family say, producing port 'requires patience and a long-term vision,' something that makes them well-placed as key producers of port today. You'll find this bottle has a deep colour to it, with notes of strawberry, raspberry and red cherry. This port has good tannins and a welcome acidity, which work well with the rich, dark fruit flavours.
