1983 Warre

Post by AHB » 22:06 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Deep red with plenty of brick; lots of fine sediment and slightly darker than the Dow 1983 drunk alongside. Again rather medicinal on the nose with antiseptic and menthol. Lovely palate, well pronounced and with lots of red licorice. Sweet and very inviting; elegant and balanced. Wonderful sweet fruity finish. 94/100. 17-Mar-16.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
