1983 Warre VP

JacobH, in the [url=http://theportforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2854]wrong place[/url] wrote: I don’t usually like adding my notes to other peoples’ but I also opened a bottle of this last night to have a dinner party (along with a 30-year-old 10-year-old Fonseca. Great minds obviously think alike with their choices of port! :)

From a full bottle which produced a huge amount of thick sediment and decanted for about 24 hours.

I was somewhat disappointed with this. It reminded me a bit of the ’85 but lesser in most regards. Fairly watery on the palate (which I don’t necessary mind) with a slight taste of chocolate and cherry. Perfectly acceptable to drink but it did not grip me in the way that I was expecting it to do.

Hopefully a bad bottle; it will be interesting to compare to one sourced elsewhere at the Warre vertical.
