1970 Warre

Post by AHB » 19:25 Sat 04 Jun 2016

Bought from the Boot & Flogger fine wine list. Bottled by Percy Fox & Sons. Mature red appearance, 60% opaque. A wonderful nose of tinned cherries, all spice and cotton dust. Smooth and fruity entry with a lovely palate presence. Lots of cherry fruit with soft tannins and a good acidic backbone, all combining to give a great balance and focus. Big aftertaste with huge dollops of sweet fruit and hints of black chocolate on the edges. Very, very long finish. Another example of a 1970 port that is absolutely fabulous right now. Wonderful, wonderful port. 93/100. 02-Jun-16. 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
