1966 Warre

Post by jdaw1 » 14:52 Mon 16 Apr 2012

Some of the obvious suspects gathered, with Stephanie T. Galley (friend of wife of jdaw1), in The Bung Hole, to drink some 1966s.

W66, bright red, 30% opaque. Nose had heat. taste very dry, start, middle, and finish. Some red fruit, including strawberry.

By itself this would have been fine port. But it wasn’t quite as fine as the others on the day.

Oporto bottled. A rich, mature red in colour; 35% opaque. Restrained on the nose; sweet redcurrants and rosemary. Nice body on entry, but lighter than the Croft or Gould Campbell. Nicely balanced with a good combination of fruit and tobacco. Wonderful aftertaste, followed by a short but sticky finish. 91/100.
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)
