Warre's

Excellent deep colour. Very scented, with a luscious and concentrated black berry fruit nose, combined with seductive floral hints. Rich and supple fruit flavours on the palate and a backbone of firm tannins. Finishes with superb richness and impressive length.

Wine Spectator

A great surprise for the vintage. Displays fabulous concentration and complex character with it's layers of very sweet fruit, chocolate and cherry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins. Long finish with plenty of grip. Beautiful wine.

Score: 95. —James Suckling, April 30, 1997.

Wine Advocate

One of the finest Warres I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-colored wine is made in a drier style (a la Dow), yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impressive length. Tasters should take note of the wealth of peppery, licorice-scented and flavored raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. Look for it to be ready to drink in 10-12 years, and keep for 30+. This is a profound example of Warre vintage port.

Score: 94. —Robert Parker, October 1996.
