1983 Warre

Post by AHB » 11:41 Sat 02 May 2015

Attractive colour. On first decanting this was rather smelly and sulphurous but 22 hours in the decanter allowed almost all of the cabbage smell to dissapate. Sweet on the palate, full of strawberries and bubblegum, with enough acidity to keep the balance. Improved further with more time in the decanter. Never a complex and dramatic port, but nice comfort drinking. 85/100. Drunk 16-Mar-15. Decanted 22 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
