Warre Porto Ruby NV
A simple, plummy port with some notes of raisin and the barest hint of chocolate. Pour with deep, dark chocolate desserts or strong blue cheeses.
This is my absolute favorite Port. I have tried several different wineries and vintages, but I love this one. The wine is well developed for a dessert wine, but it is not so sweet as to be tart. The wine has a bite to it, but the bite is gone immediately, as compared to a merlot. The deep color adds to the lure of this wine and is gorgeous in a carved crystal cordial.
Caramel, dried cherries, oak, toast and spice. Mildly acidic but good balance overall. Nice finish with raisins, brown sugar, and dried fruit.
External Reviews for Warre Porto Ruby
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast"An aged tawny that manages effortlessly to combine the freshness of a 10-year-old with the dry, cask-aged flavors of an older tawny. Its has dried apricot flavors and orange marmalade, but there is also dryness from wood aging and good concentration. "90 Points - Wine Spectator"A ripe and rich tawny. Loads of caramel, honey and dried fruits, with just a hint of Douro bake, or iodine character. Full-bodied, sweet and very toffeelike on the palate. Long finish. Dying for nuts and Stilton. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported."
