Reasonably dark by the standards of the other Warre. Perhaps reminiscent of the '70 or the '85 but with a touch less fruit and a touch more heat.

There was something wrong with this tasting. Most of the vintages had a dry sourness not usually seen in Warre. I suspect dirty decanters, though other causes are possible. Hence these TNs should not be interpreted as typical of the performance of Warre.

W80: the darkest port on the table. To taste very sticky, and some orange. Very tongue-puckering.
