Warre's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2008
Ruby color with a garnet rim. This Bottle Aged LBV shows mature red and dark fruits on the nose such as red cherries and floral notes of elderflowers. The palate is elegant and full of finesse with a backbone of freshness and flavors of red cherries and floral notes. The finish is long and lingering.
This has matured nicely, settling in with a mix of mulled black currant and plum fruit, carried by a finely grained alder spine and backed by a warm Christmas pudding note. Drink now through 2023. 7,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
The latest LBV from this estate, the 2008 Late Bottled Vintage Port is primarily Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca that spent four years in wood and was bottled in 2012. From a cooler vintage, it's made in a more seamless, elegant style yet still has beautiful depth of fruit, with classic plum, jammy blackberry, spice box, chocolate, and cigar aromatics all emerging from the glass. It holds up beautifully with air, has medium to full-bodied richness, a solid spine of acidity, and a great finish. It's a beautiful, elegant LBV that's drinking great today yet will easily evolve for another decade.
