2015 is silky smooth, the Burgundy of the Douro. Plush red fruits, good acid balance, and a long finish. Highly recommended as a Douro / Niepoort reference for elegance. — 8 days ago
Bought the 2017 whilst on holiday in the algarve at Lidl. Really enjoyed it and if it was available at this price in the UK would certainly buy lots more. Great with a carbonara and cheese plate. — 14 days ago

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Sweet nose of blackcurrants, blackberries, oak, cooked cherries, plums, vanilla, licorice, leather, light chocolates, earth, mocha, pencil lead, light vegetables and black pepper.
Full bodied and bold with high acidity and long legs.
Sweet on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherry pie, dried figs, tobacco, spices, wood, vanilla, cloves, dark coffee, chocolates, alcohol, mocha, caramel, spices and peppercorn.
Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This vintage Port is young and so enjoyable already. Well balanced and sweet with lots of acidity to balance the sugars out. Good by itself as a desert.
Big and still showing some alcohol, on the palate, and earth notes on the nose, which will go away with time.

Because everyone should drink port before noon on a Sunday, that's why. And a nice one this is. Pleasant thick dark fruit up front, Sweet Mother Alcohol coming through to remind you you're about to be on the impaired side of the equation. A good lingering of dark fruit finishes things off well. — 3 days ago
