2011 Warre

Post by AHB » 21:24 Sun 18 Aug 2013

More purple with a bigger transparent rim than either the D11 or the G11. Very subdued nose. Lovely balance and elegance on entry, with the fruit arriving gently and in harmony with the tannins. Both grow to big levels on the palate but keep their balance. Big aftertaste and a big chocolate finish. Really impressive and much better than at the BFT. 94-96. Snapshot tasting on 20 May 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
