1970 Warre's Vintage Port

SKU #980250 Jancis Robinson

 Pale ruby. Round and a bit spirity. Pretty aggressive. Lots of alcohol on the end.  (12/ 2010)

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."  (1/ 1989)

Wine Spectator

 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)

K&L Notes

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."

Country:

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and D„o area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.

Port

- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
