1986 Warre LBV

Post by AHB » 12:33 Sat 02 May 2015

Traditional unfiltered LBV, bottled 1990. Bronzed red in colour, mature and attractive. Fruity nose, full of dusty plums and cornflowers. Balanced on the palate, full of mature fruit - plums and almonds. Very gentle tannins supporting a well poised and delicious palate. Fruit-led aftertaste and a very long finish full of flavour and black chocolate. Poised, elegant and delicious - delicious port. 92/100. 24-Apr-15. 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)
