Mostly from the Pinhão Valley and Rio Torto, 40% old mixed vines - dense with rich, ripe, cherry-stone fruit quite hefty for Warre. Stunningly good. Drink: 2030-2050. Score - 96. (Richard Mayson, decanter.com, March 5, 2014)

Visually it exhibits deep opaque purple colour of youth. Aromatically, layers of sweet blackberry fruit are intertwined with hints of fresh violets. Flavours of kirsch, chocolate, dark plum and allspice are intertwined with a silky tannic backbone, leading to a long velvety finish. Simply stunning.
