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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
