This wine has lightened since the '90s - not to its detriment or improvement, just different. It still has the black fruit note, and finishes with a bit of mineral that can stand up to most strong cigars.

This port shows fragrant aromas of fruits and a rich palate dominated by sweet black fruits with a nice mineral finish. Enjoy this great-value ruby port any time. It goes well with aged cheddar and other dried fruits.

Nice dark purple core with hints of bright fuchsia on the rim. Sweet blackberry aromas with a touch of eucalyptus are supported by intense dark earth and white truffle notes. The wine is very lively on the palate with high acidity keeping it light and fresh. Bright sweet fruit on the front with a touch of heat on the mid-palate. Dark blackberry and caramel notes on the finish are accented by a light note hazelnut. Mike Supple.

Fresher in style than the Warrior of the '90s, this blend is bright and vibrant, filled with luscious fruit inflected by the black pepper of schisty tannins. It's like a small-scale vintage, beautifully balanced. Wine & Spirits. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. N.V. Warre Warrior Special Reserve 375ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Warrior is the oldest mark of Port in the world, having been shipped continuously since the 1750s. The name Warrior was branded on the casks of Warre’s finest Vintage Character wine since the earliest days of the firm. The traditional style has been maintained over the years and it is today a classic full-bodied wine with wonderful richness and balance. GRAPE VARIETIES: The grapes used in the production of Warre’s Warrior are a blend of traditional Portuguese varieties from the Douro Valley, such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta read more... read more... Barroca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinto Cão. VINIFICATION: Warre’s Warrior under-goes fermentation with natural yeast at between 24-28ºc. Once the must has fermented to the desired degree of sweetness (usually within 48 hours), fortification takes place with grape brandy at 77% v/v (generally 80% must / 20% brandy). AGEING: Warre’s Warrior is aged in oak casks for some 4 to 5 years at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia,.after which the wines are drawn off and bottled after a light filtration. TASTING NOTES: Deep red colour, with intensely rich aromas of ripe red fruits and spices. On the palate well balanced and full-bodied, with a long and complex finish. SERVING TIPS: - Does not need decanting. - The wine is ready to drink when bottled, but will maintain its quality in bottle. - Serve at room temperature 18ºc, or slightly chilled in hot weather. - Superb with cheese, nuts or dried fruit after a meal. PRESS COMMENTS: “Vanilla and cherry aromas, sweet, full, tight, spice and cinnamon flavours. Tasty and powerful”.
