Warre Port Blend Porto Vintage 1997
The Institute of Masters of Wine organised a comprehensive tasting of 1997ports to be tasted in alphabetical order. No. 34 was Warre and what a wonderfulway to finish. Powerful and harmonious with a beautifully integrated tannins,its is colour holding very well, with no spirity notes or signs of prematureageing that have been noted with some of the 1997s. Indeed the fact that it wasplaced last is indicative not of the fact that W is close to the end of thealphabet, I suspect, but rather because the Warre 77, of all the great winesproduced in that year, is currently showing the best.

External Reviews for Warre Port Blend Porto Vintage
A great surprise for the vintage. Displays fabulous concentration and complex character with its layers of very sweet fruit, chocolate and cherry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, adding velvety tannins. Long finish with plenty of grip. Beautiful wine. Try after 2008.

Warre has been making exceptionally fine ports of late, and their 1985 is the sweetest and richest of their recent vintages. Extremely concentrated, rich, even luscious, this full-bodied, intense, opulent wine has layers of fruit, a full-blown bouquet, and impeccable balance. The soft tannins and precocious appeal of the 1985 suggest rapid maturation.
This Port house is always underrated, and its 1994 is one of the great surprises of this stupendous vintage. Easier to find than many other '94s, it's harmonious, with impressive balance of sweet fruit and firm yet silky tannins.
Aromas of minerals, berries and wet earth jump out of the glass. Full-bodied and very chewy, with lots of fruit and a long finish. A tough young wine. Warres is flexing its muscles here. Best after 2008.
Big, fat, sweet and fruity, with loads of crushed berry, cherry and ripe grape. Full-bodied and chewy, with lots of tannin and a long, sweet finish.
...Enticing aromas of cassis, lilac, licorice and mint. Rich, sweet and nicely concentrated; floral and dark berry flavors are fresh and pure. Stylish and seamless. Finishes with even, fine tannins and very good persistence... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1997 Warre Vintage Port 750ml
