"Offers lovely perfumed aromas and beautiful raspberry and blackberry character, turning to tar, black truffle and wet earth. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a balance of very chewy tannins and sugary fruit at the finish. This goes on and on. The great 1994 again? Best after 2020. 6,500 cases made." (WS)

"The 2007 Warre Vintage Port is one of the stars of the vintage. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an expressive bouquet of Asian spices, incense, lavender, blackberry, and fruitcake. Plush on the palate with outstanding volume, it exhibits a sense of elegance as well as power. Savory flavors, plenty of structure for the long haul, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish suggests two decades of cellaring are in order. This superb effort should still be drinking well in 2050."

"($73) Good deep ruby. Lovely high-pitched, perfumed aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, licorice and orange peel. Dense, sweet and deep, with a wonderfully lush texture and captivating purity of fruit. Finishes long and fresh, with extremely refined tannins and excellent lift. A beauty." (IWC)
