1989 Warre Quinta da Cavadinha

Post by g-man » 02:23 Mon 20 Feb 2012

Dark ruby core but showing signs of gradient ambering as you go closer to the edge.

a pretty nose of red berries, freshly crushed juniper berries and a hint of lavender backed with that spirity milk chocolate nose you find in some ports.

A medium to full bodied albeit heated and sweet entry of licorice, black pepper and no discernable fruits that turns dry and a little spirity on the finish.

I can see this turning into something like an offley @ the 40 year mark.

pleasant, but certainly not something to bring home to the mother.
86.
