1995 Warre's "Quinta Da Cavadinha" Port

SKU #240059 92 points Wine Spectator

 *#8 on the Top 100 of 1998* This young Port sneaks up on you and then--bam! Aromas of grapes, flowers and minerals pave the way for a slowly building palate that finishes with a burst of ripe, exotic fruit. Full-bodied, yet very tight and held back. (JS)  (4/1998)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep ruby-red. Vinous aromas of black raspberry, shoe polish, camphor and fresh herbs. Sweet, juicy and a bit raw, even aggressive, but shapely and fresh. Quite intensely flavored, though not yet showing much complexity. Finishes with strong licorice and berry flavors. (ST)  (3/1998)

Additional Information:



- 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 Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.


- 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.
