Warre's Vintage Port 2003, Port Wine

Warre's Vintage Port 2003, Port Wine

Origin: Portugal - Duoro
Characteristics: Rich, ripe, dense and full, savory, sweet, long and memorable –such words and praise belong to all Port. With dozens if not hundreds of grape varieties allowed in blending, Port may very well possess the broadest spectrum of fragrance and flavor for any wine. Couple that with sound maturation in cask or bottle and you are sure to enjoy an inimitable wine unique in the entire world; perhaps because the five main varieties are indigenous to Portugal: Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, and Touriga Nacional. Aged great lengths in wood, Ports soften to a tawny color with a caramel quality replete with nuances of nuts, citrus rinds and dried fruits. Those Ports aged in bottle are more opaque, sinuous, and tend to combine the richness of dark, dried fruits with a high toned fragrance of flowers harmonizing with low notes of gingerbread, molasses, anise, spice box, and a finish that lingers to show you even more. Port is a nonpareil that reaches a vinosity in ways no other wine can; enjoy them for the rest of your life –may it be a long one!
Expert Review
93 Points - “Black pepper, ceiling wax, spices, and toast are found in the nose of the potentially exceptional 2003 Warre Vintage Port. A concentrated, backward 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. It will require serious cellaring.”

Warre's Late Bottled Port 2002 
Characteristics: Warre’s 2002 Bottle Aged Late Bottled Vintage Porto | 20% | Unlike most other Late Bottled Vintage Ports that are bottled and sold immediately once they have sent the required time in wooden cask, Warre’s is neither fined nor filtered but bottled with all the nuances that make this such a superlative LBV and it is then aged another four years in bottle to develop. A deep core thick skinned berries lift into a woodsy spice of pepper, cedar and sandalwood and curl about beneath a beautiful floral top note. Consistently the most vintage like LBV I taste each year and an example the other quintas ought to follow.
