Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2000

SKU 2166


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.

Wine SpectatorNow we are talking. Wow. Aromas of licorice, flowers and crushed blackberries. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with lovely smooth, fine tannins and a long, sweet fruit finish. Greatest young Vintage Port of Smith Woodhouse I have ever tasted. Best after 2014. 4,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateWhile Smith Woodhouse's 2000 possesses a healthy dark ruby/purple, its muted aromatics are disappointing. Medium-bodied, with jammy fruit and moderate sweetness, this is a pleasant but one-dimensional, straightforward vintage port to drink over the next 12-15 years.
