2009 Warre

Post by jdaw1 » 23:54 Fri 08 Apr 2011

Tasted at The Big Fortified Tasting, a trade fair in London at Glaziers Hall on Wed 06 April 2011 (Review thread, containing links to other tasting notes). This being a large trade-fair event, tasting notes generally brief.

W09. Extreme violets. Very mouthfillingly large. And very drinkable. Liked.

Cask Sample 5 2009 VP
Soft and supple on the nose, with a good combination of fruit and grapiness. In the mouth, very supple and soft, with rounded tannins. This may bloom early into a good Port.

Cask sample. 500 cases made. The wine has been blended and released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the liberation of Oporto by William Warre. Bright blueberry nose, very elegant restrained fruit. Huge levels of acidity on the palate, but the violet fruit comes through to dominate. soft mulberries and tannins on the aftertaste and a surprisingly subdued finish. 87-89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
