Niepoort Vintage Port 2000

$81

This has hit its stride, with a panoply of singed hazelnut, melted black licorice, Christmas pudding and steeped fig, boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors all stretched out through the long, spice-infused finish, showing lovely freshness at the end. A gorgeous Port with another decade of evolution to go.—Blind 2000 Vintage Port retrospective (March 2021). Drink now through 2035. 2,000 cases made, 250 cases imported.

94 A harmonious, powerful young thing. Super aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of wet earth and tobacco. Full-bodied and racy, with loads of silky tannins and a long, long finish. Medium sweet. It builds on your palate and then, wham. Serious stuff. Best after 2011. 2,000 cases made, 250 cases imported. —JS

BT Harmonious and powerful. Black-purple color, with aromas of currants, berries and minerals, with a hint of green tobacco. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with plenty of power. Gripping tannins, yet polished and refined. Almost 95-plus points. Score Range: 92-95 —JS
