1970 Warre's Vintage Port
Pale ruby. Round and a bit spirity. Pretty aggressive. Lots of alcohol on the end.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good tawny called Nimrod. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop... they have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style."
Wonderful fruit on the palate... Medium to deep red, with earthy cassis and tomato aromas, full-bodied, with concentrated black cherry flavors, medium tannins and a long, sweet finish. (Web-1989)
Michael Broadbent writes: "Pristine purple now easing a little, starting to mature; lovely fruit, fragrance and vinosity; sweet, full-bodied, rich, almost too rich, yet not overpowering, with the perfect weight and balance I expect from Warre at its best."
