Warre's Vintage Port, 1985
Description and Reviews:
From the outstanding 1985 Vintage
Reviews: "Lovely orange skins nose, together with nuts and figs. On the palate, it has finesse, elegance and such a sweet kickback. Massively enchanting and, now it is over the magic 20 years, perfection to drink."
Serena Sutcliffe , Cuisine & Wine Asia 2008
Very very dark. Sweet, spicy, liquorice nose. Very broad start to the palate and then dried fruits on the finish. Lots of firm tannins still. Still relatively embryonic. Heat on the finish. Lovely spice on the finish. Not the most stereotypically feminine Warre style of wine. Powerful finish. Almost brawny with some wild fruit and flower flavours on the nose. Still chewy. Jancis Robinson , Jancisrobinson.com 2006
This is a perfect example of the incredibly well-balanced and concentrated 1985 Vintage. This wine is packed with fruit on the nose and palate with a tight firm structure." The Wine Spectator 1988
Excellent colour. A lot of quality and depth here, marvellous fruit, real voluptuous depth, will be silky in time. Full body, quite some tannins but these are very ripe. A very stylish, elegant wine with excellent fruit.
Clive Coates , The Vine
WARRE has been making exceptionally fine Ports of late and their 1985 is the sweetest and richest of their recent Vintages. Extremely concentrated, rich, even luscious, this full bodied, intense, opulent wine has layers of fruit, a full blown bouquet and impeccable balance”.
