1945 Warre

Post by AHB » 09:20 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Deep reddish-brown, 40% opaque. A lovely developed and mature nose, full of leathery fruit, clover honey and hibiscus flower. Soft and smooth entry, perfect poise with toasted sugar leading cranberry and rose hips. Dry on the palate. Dry burnt sugar on the aftertaste and finish; a great length. Lovely refined port. Served blind this was guessed to be Graham 1955. 94/100. Drunk 25-Sep-16.
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
