1981 Warre LBV

Post by AHB » 22:48 Sun 27 Dec 2015

Deep red but with a copper-brown core; 90% opaque. Sweet fruit nose, faint blackberry fruit but with a touch of herbaceousness. Smooth sweet entry with an interesting strawberry and red licorice - even with a hint of gentle tannin. Dry licorice root aftertaste. Lovely sweet finish with great length. 91/100. Drunk 24-Nov-15. Decant N/K.

Drunk at Otto's on 24 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
