Warre's 1999 LBV Port is drinking beautifully, with more promise from extended cellaring.

Warre’s does not produce such opulent wines as can be found elsewhere in the Symington stable, but they can often have great elegance and perfume. Vintages are drawn from fruit from their prime vineyard site: the Quinta da Cavadinha, located in the Pinhão Valley, and fashioned in Warre’s unmistakable sumptuously rich style, with lovely characteristic underlying minerality. As with other port houses Warre’s maintain a lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia, the buildings housing the largest oak vat used by any house: which holds the equivalent of over 178000 bottles of port!

"...beautifully balanced, the ripe flavors sitting comfortably with the core of acidity and dark tannins. There are dried fruits, raisins and sultanas, as well as fresher sweet plums.”
Wine Enthusiast

"Port is one of the world's greatest wine values. Here, you get top terroir, a top producer and a wine that is being re-released with some 20 years of age on it.” Robert Parker
