1985 Warre

Post by AHB » 22:21 Thu 04 Jan 2018

From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Mature red ochre colour, 40% opaque. A lovely nose of gently spiced and mature port. Round textured entry, with soft sweet cherry fruit and a dry, powdery tannin core. A perfect level of acidity acts as a foil to tge lovely sweet black wine-gum fruit. There is some acidity on the aftertaste, but this quickly settles to a long black wine-gum finish. This is lovely drinking and still quite young. 90/100. 23-Nov-17.
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
