External Reviews for Warre Port Blend Porto Vintage
Lovely floral aromas of berries, violets and minerals. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a racy finish. A harmonious yet well-toned Warre. Reminds me of the 1991. Best after 2010.
Straightforward yet intense, ripe black raspberry liqueur and cassis scents are followed by a medium to full-bodied, elegant, restrained, balanced port with moderately high tannin as well as outstanding purity. It is a vintage port with impeccable finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.
An unprecedented low yield contributed to the marvelous concentration of the wines produced in this vintage. The very low bunch weight and the fact that the berries themselves were very small also meant that there was much less juice than usual relative to the amount of skins. Consequently even more extraction of color and flavors was possible than in other years. Ideal weather during the vintage, with cool nights followed by hot days, added the finishing touch to the variety of factors which culminated in a classic year. At least 5 years (we recommend up to 20) in the cellar will reward the purchaser with a great wine.
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.
There is plenty of grip and backbone here. Deep purple, with concentrated grape and violet aromas, full-bodied, with huge grapy flavors, excellent backbone and a long finish.
Medium ruby. 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.
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.
