1984 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 21:11 Thu 03 Jul 2014

Decanted cleanly off a large amount of heavy sediment. Burnt ochre in colour, 20% opaque. Little on the nose, some blood orange. Some sweetness on entry, a little fruit. Later on the palate there is a better focus with the underlying acidity supporting rose hip and orange peel. Luscious aftertaste and a big, lingering finish full of bitter licorice. Decent port. 85/100. Drunk 22-Jun-14. Decanted ½ hour.
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
