1987 Warre Cavadinha

Post by AHB » 13:45 Tue 11 Nov 2014

From half bottle. Dark and attractive red-mahogany. Gentle nose of sweet black cherry and sage. Modest and gentle entry, light fruit and a bit of herbaceous bite. Light-bodied. Peppery aftertaste and hot finish of good length. Decent drinking port. 86/100. Drunk 08-Oct-14. Decanted 24 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
