S70. Nose had red must, perfume, and boiled candy. Taste starts light, with some heat. medium mid-palate. Good length. The same boiled candy also present. Fine port.

Interestingly, somebody guessed that this was Warre 1986 LBV, and that the 1984 Warre LBV was Sandeman 1970. Hey ho.

Bottled by Avery's. Light red centre, pale rim. Lively and fruity nose, very attractive with lots of spearmint. Modest - almost light - bodied, still a little youthful with lively fruit and spicy pepper on the palate. Good volume of fruit when mixed with air, showing lots of dusty cherries. There is a touch of acidity on the aftertaste, then a long dry and fruity finish full of bid cedar wood flavours. Served blind this was guessed to be Warre 1986 LBV. 87/100. Drunk 26-Feb-13. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
