An evocative mélange of sweetscented wild flowers, Rainier cherry, cocoa and cool eucalyptus pack a punch to the nose. A tale of two Ports: one side is soft and exudes feminine stylishness and immediate approachability, while the other is endowed with power and massively concentrated fruit. Rich and chewy, showcasing a sweet entry with black cherry, ripe plum and blackcurrant flavors, enhanced by an exemplary level of acidity. The persistent finish is a showstopper while the impressively firm grippy tannins show up in time for the curtain call, allowing this 2007 VP to age effortlessly for three decades minimum, and possibly five. But there’s no reason to wait as it shows lots of charm now, too. 6,500 cases produced (12 x 750s). Simply put, this is the best Warre’s Vintage Port I’ve ever had, at this early stage of its evolution Roy Hersh , For the Love of Port 01/11/2009
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. Wine Enthusiast 01/10/2009
The first Warre's vintage to be made entirely from its own vineyards. Fine, fragrant, great aromatic purity yet restrained. Rich, full style, even fleshy. Not as big as some but fine and expressive. Lovely grip, with elegance and poise. Richard Mayson , Decanter Magazine 01/08/2009
Liquorice and richness on the nose. Lots of spice and sweetness and very complete. Perhaps the wine closest to classic vintage port of all the 42 wines tasted here. Biding its time, all in place. Not at all showy. Dry finish. Great balance and integration. Jancis Robinson , 21/05/2009
Fresh, bright red fruit and a hint of Golden Delicious apple too. Full bodied but silky, showing preserved cherries and a bit of cream on the finish Richard Hemming , Jancis Robinson website 12/05/2009
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? James Suckling , Wine Spectator 06/05/2009
Fathomless inky plum in appearance, this has instant appeal. The nose is richly concentrated with seductive old vine fruit lifted by fresh primary berry notes and fresh violets. The palate is similarly aromatic, lively with a gregarious personality which almost obscures really impressive underlying power. Corney & Barrow 01/05/2009
Violets and dried flowers overlay the black fruits on the nose. Blackcurrant and bramble underpinned by sloe give a seductive richness and this is emphasised by the dark chocolate and liquorice. The mid palate is dense packed with fruit power. The polished tannins all add to the seductive feel and the elegance of the finish. Derek Smedley, MW
