Tasting Notes

Warre’s 2003 Vintage has a dark ruby colour. The nose is tight and concentrated with lifted fresh aromas of mint and violets and hints of black cherry fruit. On the palate it offers vibrant blackberry flavours, classic Warre finesse and silky tannins leading to a complex and long finish. This wine has excellent ageing potential This wine has excellent ageing potential and needs about 8 more years in bottle to reach its ideal state of maturity, after which it will age superbly for decades.

Very deep crimson colour. Rich fresh herbal aromas of gum cistus. Penetrating taste of vibrant blackberry flavours, very spicy with an abundance of tannins and sweetness conveying enormous complexity of flavours. Powerful combination of freshness, elegance and a long, firm finish.

2005 tasting note year

Very grapey and tannic, yet the tannins are silky and refined. Full, firm and medium-sweet, this is racy and refined.

Pierre Rovani critic

2005 tasting note year

Black pepper, spices, and toast are found in the nose of the potentially exceptional 2003 Warre Vintage Port. A concentrated, backward effort, its youthful, classically ungenerous, masculine character reveals black pepper laced dark fruits. Silky-textured in its immensely endowed midpalate, this top-flight effort displays an admirably long, tannin-filled finish. It will require serious cellaring.

Score: 93/100
