1977 Warre

Post by PhilW » 18:06 Tue 07 Apr 2015

D+8h:
Full, woody body, some slight acidity; minimal fruit, though still full and dark.
Good, but not the best bottle of W77.
Rating: good+

D+24hr:
This was much improved, better integrated. Still full, woody but smoother, with hints of liquorice and sherbet. Still a slight burnt caramel edge on the aftertaste, perhaps indicating less than perfect storage, but overall now better than initially.
Rating: VeryGood-

At D+48 this was still in the better place; I will be giving any further bottles from this batch a long decant.

Isn't W77 what brought you here?

If so I hope this is not your last ;-)

Running out of W77 was indeed what led to me discovering :tpf: ; Cr63/55, F70 and W77 where what awakened my love of port prior to that. I may have one or two bottles left still ;-)
