1970 Warre

Post by AHB » 10:02 Tue 29 Dec 2015

Deep red and mature in colour; 70% opaque. Mature nose of dry red cherries. A delightful elegance on the palate with concentrated cherries and redcurrants. Soft tannins support a dry core to the palate but all combine to give a wonderful palate. A touch of heat on the aftertaste before a very long finish. Delicious, slightly sweet, great layers of flavour. Drinking much better today than when opened yesterday. 90/100. Drunk 26-Dec-15. Decanted 24 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
