Robert Parker – 91
The nose is marked by lifted pure blackberry, dark cherry and black olive aromas, very intense and ripe with wonderful definition and showing no signs of the summer heat. The palate is full-bodied with rounded, voluptuous tannins. This is a plush port, caressing the palate with its sensuous charms with a smooth plump spicy finish. Not a cerebral Warres but one designed to impart maximum sensory if not intellectual pleasure. Drink 2015-2030. Tasted May 2009.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030
