1970 Warre vintage port

Post by AHB » 12:30 Fri 16 Jul 2010

The darkest of all of the wines tasted on this evening. Quite closed on the nose, with some faint sweet redcurrant. Thick in texture, sweet entry with lots of Christmas cake spice and faint marzipan. Huge levels of complexity and layering. Sweet, warm and fruity aftertaste. An absolutely delicious port with a long life ahead of it. 92/100. Drunk 15 July 2010.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)

Dark, thick, delicious. I thought this was another very strong showing for this wine, if a tad below its performance at the election offline. Excellent wine. Could drink this all day. 90 points (WOTN)
