1983 Warre

Post by AHB » 09:57 Wed 12 Nov 2014

Mature red colour with some nice bricking; 80% opaque. Mature, fruity nose with a nice sage overtone. A lovely mouthfeel when first sipped, full of sweet and balanced fruit. The soft, round tannins come through on the mid-palate and give a lovely overall complexity and depth to the palate of this port. Great fruitiness on the aftertaste and a long, delicious finish of sweet blackcurrant and spicy chocolate. Another bottle of a great reliable port. 90/100. Drunk 28-Oct-14. Decanted 24 hours.
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
