Smith Woodhouse 2000

Release Notes

It is clear that the 2000 wines show great power; the colour is immense and the tannins are strong. The wine itself displays complex layers of ripe fruit that promise well for the future. It is clear that 2000 was one of the smallest vintages for many years, but the concentration of the wine is exceptional, a fitting with with which to mark the year.

Tasting Notes

2010 tasting note year

Deep dark ruby colour. Wonderful lifted aromas of “esteva” and roses. Very mature fruit imparts raisin flavours and a thick cassis structure. Layers of ripe fruit promise well for the future.

2004 tasting note year

Dark blackish purple. Rich, soft, black cherries.  Very sweet and powerful and alcoholic, so much so that it is quite difficult to even discern the tannins but they are there… It is extremely young but is does have all the ingredients there.

Score: 18/20

Now we are talking. Wow. Aromas of liquorice, flowers and crushed blackberries. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with lovely smooth, fine tannins and a long, sweet finish. Greatest young Vintage Port of Smith Woodhouse I have ever tasted.

Score: 95/100
