(From 2011 Vintage) Extremely floral and fruity with hints of lilacs and crushed fruit. Full body with refined tannins integrated with a solid core of fruit, and a rich, round texture. This is lightly sweet and follows through to a long, long finish.
(From 2003 Vintage) Black pepper, ceiling wax, spices, and toast are found in the nose of the potentially exceptional 2003 Warre's Vintage Port. A concentrated 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.
Wine & Spirits(From 1997 Vintage) 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.
