1977 Warre

Post by AHB » 22:20 Thu 04 Jan 2018

From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Pale rose in colour, 20% opaque. Spicy nose with promising bitter-sweet fruit. Warm impact, sweet and ripe with the bitter undertone only coming through later. Complex and with lovely layering, a delicious mouthful but a softer, quieter finish than many ports on show this evening. Not rated as this was one of the last I tasted and I was becoming forgetful. 23-Nov-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
