1970 Warre vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:28 Sun 14 Jun 2009

Opened as part of the Wokingham offline on 11 June 2009.

Ullaged to low shoulder. Dark red / brown in colour. Muted nose with a bit of coriander or curry leaf mixed in with the sweetness. Bland in the mouth, really hollow but some black treacle flavours. Hard work brings out some blackened sugar. Lively oranges and lime on the aftertaste with a lovely long finish that is unexpected in size and duration. Odd wine - wonder what to make of this? 85/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
