1970 Warre

Post by AHB » 14:31 Thu 05 Jan 2017

Wonderful brick-red colour; 30% opaque. Delicious nose combining herbs and spices with lots of mature fruit. Smooth and refined entry which build beautifully with cedar and tobacco amidst the raisin fruit. Hunger-inducing aftertaste, full of aniseed and juniper that is just slightly hot. 92/100.

Drunk at the Berry Brothers Port Walk on 24 Nov 2016.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
