Wine tasting note: 1990 Niepoort Colheita

1990 Niepoort Colheita

1st Aug 1999 Port Fortified Red

Light tawny/pink fading to a clear yellow/brown.
Alcoholic, rummy nose with some molasses and white oak.
Quite full bodied with lots of grapy brandy flavours and a touch of tobacco and green leaf. Tannins still quite grippy and fresh acidity.
This sample had been open for a few days and was tiring slightly - impressive though.
