2001 Warre Quinta da Cavadinha

Post by rich_n » 15:31 Sun 22 Dec 2019

An informal pre-Christmas tasting of ports with the theme "A bottle of port which cost you less than £25", as suggested by winesecretary and organised (with plenty of help from others) by richn.

Double decanted 10 hours earlier, a deep red bordering on purple. Red berries on the nose. Strawberries, a lot of liquorice and spirit in the palate, and rather tannic. Feels a little unfinished, maybe too young (I hope). Getting better and softening up over the evening. Ok to good.

Very deep colour, 90% opaque. Full, rich, and figgy port of the 21st Century, albeit I took it for 2011 rather than 2001. 'A little unfinished' in this company is exactly right. It all got drunk...
