2000 Warre

From half. 3 hr decant.

90% opaque red juice. Looks high on glycerine.

Some garden herbs on the nose but immediately succeeded by deep succulent berry fruits. More nosing suggests a touch of alcoholic heat.

In the mouth, generous sweet red fruits up front and a lovely sweet loganberry finish. Not really any evident tannins- they are there, but the fruit is so splendid that they are effectively masked.

This is seriously impressive port. Still young. But, drinkable now, with very considerable pleasure. I look forward to following it over the next twenty years.
