1970 Warre Vintage Port

Post by AHB » 11:52 Sat 13 Oct 2007

Deep colour, holding right into the rim, Nose with an alcoholic overtone but with a lovely sweet menthol and licorice essence. Floods of sweet blackberries come into the mouth, with a light and creamy mid-palate. Lots of complexity in the development of the wine in the mouth. The aftertaste takes a while to kick in and is not massive or long lasting. Overall this is a youthful wine that is likely to develop a considerable elegance over time. Bottom of the top quartile and will improve over the next 10 years. 6/7 or 90/100.
