Vintage 2013 / candy sugar, mint, after eight chocolate, power, screams “I want cheese” 😉

Much more mellow than the last bottle about a year ago, study tannins have relented some and the fruit has started to reveal more depth.

A rustic and tannic beast that needs about an hour decant. More angular and rustic, much less polished than the other, more expensive Niepoort table wines. #niepoort #dourovalley #portugal

Nose with notes of red fruits and black pepper. The palate is ripe, but still with great freshness, persistent finish with soft tannins wrapped in black pepper.

Mellow and maybe slightly acidic. Bold with hints of pepper. Not my fav but better than some of the Portuguese bottles!

Nice wine to pair with a steak. Not too fruity and a strong but smooth finish.

Spicy, medium body, lot of red fruit, pleasant to drink. Black pepper stone fruit on the nose.

Big. Definitely decant. Wonderful mouthful. Balanced tannins after an hour or so decanted. $40 in Canada.
