Warre's, Vintage Portvin2000
92 point FTLOP, 91 point WA, 91 point Wine Spectator
For the love of port: "Quinta da Cavadinha may win the prize for having the lowest yields of any property in the Douro during 2000's harvest. Cavadinha is the backbone of the Warre Vintage Ports and at one time sold grapes for blending into Fonseca VPs. I am a fan of the Warre style for early consumption although their 1977 is a beauty today at 25 years old. The grapes for the 2000 were picked rather late and were very concentrated. Dark purple in color with full opacity. Aromas of violets and ripe sweet cherries, full-bodied, with juicy black cherry and ripe raspberry fruit. Elegant and balanced, deceptively soft fruit with mostly chewy tannins that come alive on Ware's long and luxurious finish. 92 points"
Parker 91 point: "Straightforward yet intense, ripe black raspberry liqueur and cassis scents are followed by a medium to full-bodied, elegant, restrained, balanced port with moderately high tannin as well as outstanding purity. It is a vintage port with impeccable finesse."
WS 91 point: "Lovely floral aromas of berries, violets and minerals. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a racy finish. A harmonious yet well-toned Warre. Reminds me of the 1991."

Det ældste af de britiske portvinshuse. Allerede i 1729 bosatte Willian Warre sig i O’Porto og de har været der lige siden. Skotten Andrew James Symington kom til O’Porto i 1882 og han og efterfølgere har haft en stor indvirkning og Warre’s blev senere overtaget af Symington gruppen.
Warre’s laver klassiske vintageportvine med et klassisk engelsk aftryk – lakrids, dyb rød frugt og holdbar.Læs mere om huset
