1987 Quinta da Cavadinha Vintage Port -- Warre's

Post by Andy Velebil » 21:31 Mon 13 Sep 2010

From a .375ml bottle. No formal notes on it, but this bottle exhibited more licorise on the palate than other bottles I remember. While I've had some bottle variation in these half bottles, this one showed more youthful red fruit than others. A touch of warmth on the finish was welcomed on an unusually cool L.A. evening.
87 points.

Was this a half bottle bought from the airport at Oporto?

I bought one from Lisbon airport in January. The perfect quantity for waiting in the departure lounge.
