1992 Warre Cavadinha

Post by jdaw1 » 22:27 Wed 09 Nov 2011

On Tuesday 8th November 2011, in The Steak Exchange EC2A 2EH, friends gathered to note the return to London of jdaw1, and the recent birth of his second daughter. The theme was ‟Port With Star Quality”, with appropriately themed placemats.

Mid-red in colour, looking to be in early maturity; 60% opaque. Beef bouillion on the nose, salty and slightly spicy with a slight hint of blueberry. Hollow on the entry, with a dry mouthfeel; fruit is subdued and slightly sulky, very dry tannins. The aftertaste is lovely, full of soft fruit and a finish of youthful blueberries. This changed rapidly in the glass, opening up to show much more fruit and herbs on the nose. Sadly, I forgot to score this.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
