Traditional LBV, bottled 1978. Rich mahogany, mature and attractive. Redcurrants and nutmeg on the nose, very promising. Smooth and lush in the mouth; medium bodied and very rich in flavour - delicious development of flavour. A quick burst of heat on the aftertste, then a huge wave of flavour on the finish where the acidity supports the intense and sweet orange-peel fruit. Delicious port. 91/100. Drunk 16 Feb 2012 after 2 hour decant.
That one was my last They really are rather good. It's also convinced me that I need to leave my 6 bottles of Warre 1995 LBV in storage for another 15-20 years! I've nearly run out of those, as well.
