1984 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 10:43 Wed 31 Oct 2012

Bottle aged, bottled in 1988. Decanted cleanly off some heavy sediment. Rose red, 40% opaque, smelling of very sweet wild strawberries. Sweet and fairly simple on the palate, pleasant but without much complexity. Light-bodied. Tasty, lingering aftertaste of soft red licorice. A pleasant port, but not up to the same standard as the recently drunk 1986 LBV. 83/100. Drunk 30-Oct-12. Decanted 3 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
