1983 Warre

Post by AHB » 23:13 Wed 08 Mar 2017

A bottle from the Naval & Military Club (@ £77). Full in flavour with deep dark cherries on the palate and a surprising dryness at the end of the palate. Later, one of the group detected heat, which passed me by unless it was the white peppercorn on the finish. Not a blockbuster of a port, a delicious Warre. 89/100. Drunk 23-Jan-17. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
