1977 Warre vintage port

Post by TLW » 03:25 Sun 17 Mar 2013

Tasted several hours after decanting, immediately after the 63 Fonseca - which probably was not fair to the Warre.

Still red, but probably about the right drinking age. With the unfair comparison, it was lighter and thinner than the Fonseca (although probably just fine on its own). Slightly peppery but length unexceptional.

On decanting plus one day, it was soft with hints of vanilla, and by decanting plus two, it was feeling thin.

Very pleasant in its own right, but will not rush out to corner the market in this one.
