1982 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 18:53 Sun 04 Nov 2012

Bottled 1986, bottle matured. Deep, mature red colour, firm centre perhaps 60% opaque. Subdued nose, attractive and rich cherry fruitcake. Sweet and voluptuous on the palate, rich fruit, perfectly mature but still full of ripe black cherries. A good dose of acidity keeps this well focused and balanced. The aftertaste is rich and fruity, with the tannins showing as a chocolate tone on the long and delicious finish. This is a rich LBV at the perfect point for drinking, wonderful. 90/100. Drunk 02-Nov-12. Decanted 48 hours - so keeps drinking really well over a couple of days!
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
