Warre's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2009
Lifted and intensely fresh blackcurrant and black cherry aromas, wrapped in secondary notes of mint and pine resin. Succulent, concentrated palate, simultaneously rounded and silky smooth. This wine is pure seduction, with alluring flavours of blackberry and cacao, punctuated by peppery tannins that provide a spicy and firm structure. Irresistible to drink now, though it has bags of life left in it. Although a big, generous wine, this 2009 displays Warre's signature elegance and balance.
Long maturation in the bottle after wood aging has given this wine great quality and style. It has a dry edge that is typical of Warre's, along with mature dried fruit and spice flavors. The wine is fine; it's ready to drink now.
