1958 Warre vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:25 Fri 12 Apr 2013

Burnt ochre in colour; 30% opaque. Delightful and inviting nose; lots of rose hip syrup, really well developed. Sweet entry, with well evolved fruit, full of raisins and dried figs but with the perfect acidity to give a great elegance. Great florality, tremendous length, full and rich. 93/100. Drunk 18-Jan-13.
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
