2011 Warre

Post by AHB » 21:25 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Gentle aromatics show on the nose that was at its best on day 3. Satin smooth entry, with powerful mid-palate acidity that swamps the pure and clean fruit and dry tannins. The aftertaste is eye watering in its acidic intensity before a huge complex finish of tremendous length. 92-94. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2013 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
