Warre's Quinta da Cavadinha 1996

Release Notes

The Quinta da Cavadinha 1996 follows the classic Warre style, with very concentrated red and black fruit, with hints of Esteva. On the palate, a potent structure in harmony with the fruit, and with a long elegant finish. Warre’s Quinta da Cavadinha 1996 due to its great depth of structure will undoubtedly be a wine to age for many years.

Alcohol by volume v/v (20º C): 20%
Total Acidity g/l tartaric acid: 4,88
Baumé: 3.4

Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson critic

World of Fine Wine (magazine) source
2012 tasting note year

A huge crop led to some rather stretched, early-maturing wines; mid-deep maturing color; evolved, truffley, and slightly soupy on the nose (lacking definition); rich, soft, and quite loose knit in style, especially immediately after the 1998s; quite big and round, fully ready to drink; satisfying but not one to keep.

Score: 13.5/20
