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.
