2009 Warre LBV

Post by AHB » 21:58 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Filtered, bottling date not given. Offered at the BA Lounge in Terminal 5 at Heathrow.

Deep cherry red, opaque. Sweet nose, sticky; smelling of cherry Tizer. Smooth and balanced on the palate, lots of red cherry fruit but with a great freshness from the acidity; good complexity on the mid palate. The acidity burns slightly on the aftertaste, but the finish is big and flavoursome with chewy green tannins and a good length. Medium weight port that is youthful but so smooth and easy to drink. 87/100. Drunk 12-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
