Warre’s was the first British Port company established in Portugal and is famous for its classic Vintage Ports, alongside its Quinta da Cavadinha Vintage Port, released in non-declared years and, consistently rated amongst the best in blind tasting events.
With ripe black fruits, pepper, spice and toasty aromas this is a concentrated and structured wine with good tannins and great finish. To be kept.
“Black pepper, sealing wax, spices, and toast are found in the nose of the potentially exceptional 2003 Warre Vintage Port. A concentrated, backward effort, its youthful, classically ungenerous, masculine character reveals black pepper laced dark fruits. Silky-textured in its immensely endowed mid-palate, this top-flight effort displays an admirably long, tannin-filled finish. It will require serious cellaring.” – 93 pts, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, October 2005
