1983 Warre vintage port

Post by AHB » 11:26 Wed 24 Dec 2008

Very pale red with a transparent centre and briking on the rim. A sweet nose of toffee apples. Very balanced on entry, mature and with wonderful integration of the fruit and tannins. The mid-palate complexity takes time to show through, but really rewards patience. A big aftertaste with lots of licorice root all over it. An excellent bottle. 93/100. Tasted 27/11/08.
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
