1985 Warre

Post by AHB » 23:32 Fri 15 Dec 2017

Avalable from the Carlton Club @ £75 per bottle. Deep red colour, still opaque. Full of deep dark fruit on the palate, rich and powerful (which are not normally adjectives associated with Warre!). On the finish this is dominated by lots of black licorice. Very fine and very promising for 10 to 15 years time. 90/100. Drunk 03-Oct-17. 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
