2000 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 13:52 Wed 12 Jan 2011

Traditional LBV, bottled 2004. Red-black colour, completely opaque. Very grapey nose, smelling very young. Rich blackcurrant and dark fruit on the palate; lots of morello cherry. A big presence, full of tannins - attractive and powerful. Deep, brooding aftertaste with a dry and tannic finish that fills the mouth and lasts ages. 92/100. Drunk 10 Jan 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
