1963 Warre

Post by AHB » 08:23 Tue 03 Jan 2017

Drunk at the restaurant Blini in Vila Nova de Gaia. Mature brick red colour, 50% opaque. Gentle nose of black fruits stewed with cloves. Smooth and round on the palate, gently spiced, managing to combine sweetness and richness with elegance. Some sweet fruit shows on the aftertaste before a long, red cinnamon finish of great length. A lovely elegance to the port. 91/100. Drunk 30-Sep-16. Decanted 5 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
