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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
