1970 Warre

Post by djewesbury » 12:45 Fri 19 Dec 2014

Some friends gathered in The Boot and Flogger on Redcross Way, SE1, as part of our quest to find a new home. We had an excellent evening, mainly drinking from the Davy's wine list.

Sorry, I took no note of this wine (the last of the night).

Purchased from the list of the Boot & Flogger. Bottled by Percy Fox of SW1. Mature red appearance, a lovely brick-red; 60% opaque. Very dusty nose, slightly funky - possibly a very slight TCA. Soft and sweet on the subtle entry; lots of green leaves and sharp currants with hints of dry, green wood. Dry aftertaste, long dry finish. A decent bottle but tainted by TCA, fortunately drunk quickly enough after opening to prevent the TCA from making the port undrinkable. 87/100.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
