Niepoort Batuta Douro Tinto 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big, ripe, and plummy on the nose with nuanced candied black fruit, licorice, dried plum and medicinal aromas paired with cinnamon bark and resins notes, all making for a complex perfume. A touch balsamic on entry, this is bright and vibrant in the mouth with tons of edgy tannins supporting a bright core of plums, sour black cherry and earthy fruit. The powerful acids and tannins need to age a bit to fully integrate but this shows beautiful persistence to the fruit and complexity on the palate. 92pts
