Niepoort Colheita Port, Douro Valley, Portugal 1995
And just in case, anyone had forgotten that the Douro happens to make a little-known fortified wine called Port, Dirk Niepoort dazzled us with this textbook tawny. Niepoort Colheita Port 1995 brimmed with seductive complexity comprising a panoply of taste sensations: coffee, nuts, molasses, raisins, toffee and caramel. Fresh, viscous and sumptuously sweet, it is now in its pomp and will remain so for many years yet.
