Wine Enthusiast

Wine Enthusiast is one of the leading wine-publications in the USA. It was founded in 1988 by Adam and Sybil Strum and enjoys a readership of some 680,000 worldwide. Every year the editors of Wine Enthusiast evaluate—in blind tastings—some 15,000 wines from all significant wine regions in the world. Their noted editor Roger Voss rates the wines from Dirk Niepoort as follows:

Port:

97 Points: Vintage Port 2005 (Roger Voss: „Powerful and dense, this wine exudes the darkest of tannins as well as intense black fruit. Layers of richness and structure show in this Port’s considerable ageability, while its acidity lends freshness. This is a wine that should be aged for 15 years or more.“)

96 Points: 30 Year Old NV

95 Points: Vintage Port 2009

94 Points: Colheita 1984

94 Points: Colheita 1986

93 Points: 20 Year Old NV

93 Points: Colheita 1998

93 Points: Bioma Vintage Port 2008

90 Points: 10 Year Old NV

90 Points: Colheita 2001

89 Points: Late Bottled Vintage 2007

88 Points: NV Tawny Port

87 Points: NV Dry White

Red Wine, Vintage 2009:

95 Points: Batuta Tinto (Roger Voss: „Dark color, this is a powerful, classic wine, with dense tannins. It has rich-black-fruit flavors, and notes of wood and herb that are packed into its concentrated, dry structure. This is a great Douro for aging.”)

93 Points: Redoma Tinto

91 Points: Vertente Tinto

90 Points: Charme Tinto

88 Points: Twisted Tinto

White Wine, Vintage 2010:

92 Points: Redoma Branco (Roger Voss: „An impressive wood-aged wine that offers a rich, complex series of ripe yellow-fruit flavors, a steely texture and layers of wood toast. It is finely balanced, a wine with great style, spice and final acidity.“)

90 Points: Vinho Verde „Docil“

89 Points: Tiara Branca
