1994 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 22:12 Fri 12 Apr 2013

Traditional LBV, bottled 1998. Deep red in colour, opaque. Perfumed raspberries on the nose, opening beautifully in the glass to become really inviting. So sweet on the palate, full of violets and ripe blackberries. Still quite tight, but with a fabulous balance. Astonishing aftertaste, huge and long lasting with so many phases and nuances - this is a really good port that seems to only just be opening up again. I can't imagine what this will be like in 10 years time. Wow! 93/100. Drunk 31-Jan-13. Pop 'n' Pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Fond memories of this one. The first port that I consumed in quantity when we first came to the UK in 2005.
