1997 Warre's Vintage Port

SKU #500626
Wonderful purple blue color. A classic Warre nose full of class and complexity, packed with concentrated layers of ripe red fruits and underlying gum cistus aromas. On the palate rich floral flavors, enormous mid-palate structure, and impressive length. Undoubtedly a wine for long ageing and a classic amongst Vintages.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 94
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Dark ruby. Subtle and rich aromas of prune, spice, juniper berry and leaves. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with big round tannins. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Still very young. It's lost its youthful toughness, but give it a little more time. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective.
Warre’s, founded in 1670, was the first British Port company established in Portugal and therefore the pioneer of a great tradition; its history is synonymous with that of Port itself. Warre’s Ports are distinguished for their structure, power and softly perfumed nose. They have a particularly fresh and elegant style. Warre’s premium wines are sourced from Quinta da Cavadinha and Quinta do Bom Retiro Pequeno, two of the finest estates of the Douro valley. Warre’s Vintage Ports are renowned the world over for their excellence and are consistently placed amongst the best in comparative tastings.
