1945 Warre

Post by AHB » 22:27 Mon 11 Nov 2013

Oporto bottled , possibly by Coassert. Dark amber colour, 30% opaque. Slightly spirity on the nose, a touch of varnish and mild VA. Very tertiary on the palate, full of brown sugar and faint tannins. Patience just allows more brown sugar to come through the palate. This is soft and elegant port. The finish brings yet more brown sugar, with a bit of icing sugar mixed in for good measure. Elderly and mature, but should last some years yet. 85/100. 01-Nov-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
