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. (JS)
This massive, glass-coating wine has a purple edge deepening to the center, where it glows black. But rather than feeling massive, it's elegant, the way that the roar of a Moto Guzzi is elegant. It's mellow and relaxed as the flavors plow on for minutes in a crush of black satin. You might find green peppercorn, scents of edamame or savory and sweet tobacco in its wake. As fascinating and delicious as this wine may be to spar with today, it will likely be best 20 to 30 years from now.
The 2007 Warre’s is another simply stellar example of the vintage, with a depth and intensity that I have not traditionally tasted in young examples of this house. Amongst the top lodges, Warre’s is probably the one that I taste with the least frequency, so I am not sure when this deeper, more powerful style of Warre’s first began to be seen, but the 2007 is certainly a terrific example of the vintage. The bouquet is superb, as it jumps from the glass in a blaze of black cherries, violets, tar, black pepper and a lovely, complex base of soil. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and notably powerful for Warre’s, with great mid-palate depth, tangy acidity, firm tannins and simply great length and grip on the complex and beautifully balanced finish.

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.

A floral wine, offering dusty tannins to go with its sweet crushed strawberry flavors. There are spice and black fig flavors as well as elegance—a sense of proper restraint just waiting to power out in maybe 10 years. At the moment, it is all fruit, but over time it will show more structure. (RV)
Very dark crimson still. Heady, exotic, rather Mouton-like aromas. Notably sweet palate entry with some sensation of tea leaves. I like the combination of tension and sweetness! Racy and full of fruit and delivery. Getting there in terms of nuance. 17.5/20 points. (JR)
