On Monday 24th September 2012, several members of TPF met at TBH for a dual mini-vertical of Warre's and Fonseca ports of the same years.

Orange-brown in colour, 20% opaque. Oxidised on the nose, slightly maderised. Soft, nutty and tawny on the palate with nice and attractive balancing acidity. Good concentration on the palate. Fabulous, huge aftertaste with superb concentration. A real surprise of a port after the initial smell. 91/100. Decanted 14 hours
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.

tawny-like, actually very nice, but not how it should have been, oxidised. Not rated (faulty).
