1963 Warre vintage port

Post by AHB » 12:33 Tue 26 Mar 2013

Bottled by Mayor Sworder. Rose red, bricking; 30% opaque. Delictae and floral nose, with delicious cinammon and nutmeg. Sweet and gentle entry, bringing a lovely palate presence. Complex but elegant with sweet strawberry fruit and a nice balancing acidity. Really attractive. A delicate aftertaste, then a long and delicious finish. A beautiful showing. January 2013. 5 hour decant.
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
