2016 Warre

Post by AHB » 20:42 Tue 09 Oct 2018

Opaque. Esteva nose, lightly fruity and very floral. Sweet balanced entry with round fruit that has a lovely intensity. Slightly deeper than some ports with sweet ripe fruit, round smooth blackcurrant. Nicely balanced aftertaste and a great intensely fruity finish. A very good Warre with the refined balance you would expect from this house. 92-94.

Tasted 12 September 2018.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017

W16 Deep ruby red with an inky black core. A very elegant port. Soft, smooth, fresh with red fruit dominating. Great balance and a wonderful finish. A very lovely port.
