1966 Warre

Post by jdaw1 » 14:51 Thu 27 Jun 2013

Eleven regulars gathered in a crowded Bung Hole to give Mr Doty a break from Wimbledon, in the form of a 1966 horizontal. It’s a hard life.

W66. Red by brick red, 40% opaque. Perhaps past its prime. Slight bitterness and heat throughout. Some sweetness. The fruit weak to gone.

Brick red. Thin and spiritous on the nose. Quite fiery in the mouth, a very slight toffee note, with alcohol loitering in the finish, and a bitterness lurking behind.

Mayor Sworder bottling. Deep reddish brown; 20% opaque. Subdued on the nose, a little harsh and perhaps with a touch of acetone. Soft and thick textured entry bringing gentle flavours, that becomes sweet and concentrated and shows lovely development. Clean aftertaste, with a touch of heat on the finish and then a long length. Very fine port. 92/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
