Professional Wine Reviews for Warre Late Bottled Vintage Port 2003

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2003 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a traditional Douro field blend, bottled unfiltered in 2007 with a real cork. It comes in at 105 grams per liter of residual sugar. Fresh, lively and quite rich, this is a Porto with a chocolaty finish, plus fine focus and precision. The delectable flavors make it a bit on the decadent side, but its sunny disposition means that it is never cloying or syrupy. Moreover, it is denser than it first appears. It's not jammy, but it is tightly wound with surprisingly fine mid-palate concentration. It takes awhile (it's better on Day 2) to open up and become more... read more... Additional information »

Additional Information on Warre Late Bottled Vintage Port 2003

Winery: Warre

Region: Porto

Porto, situated in the Douro Valley of Portugal, has long been recognized as a vitally important center for viticulture and wine production. Of course, the city itself is most readily associated with the beautifully aromatic and utterly delicious Port wines, which have been continually popular around the world since the 18th century. The wineries in and around Porto know that their terroir is highly special, with a wonderful mix of gravelly and clay based soils, packed full of minerals carried by the river that flows through it. This, combined with the hot and sunny climate, creates perfect conditions for high quality grape cultivation, and there are dozens of varietals which thrive in and around Porto, many of which are used for making the famous fortified wines.

Country: Portugal

One of the oldest regions of Portugal for wine production and vine cultivation is the Bairrada, the lush and clay-rich region responsible for an impressive range of red, white and rosé wines of exceptional quality. As with much of the country, this region benefits from long, hot summers, allowing the grapes to ripen to full maturity and thus carry a wide range of flavors and aromas. However, each region of Portugal produces wines which reach a high level of quality, from the more urbanized regions around Lisbon and Porto, where the famous fortified and Colares wines originate, to the island of Madeira and the Dao river valley, which each have their own distinctive wine cultures. The several thousand years of viticultural history in Portugal has allowed Portuguese wineries to master their own traditional techniques, which are still employed to this day across the country, yielding excellent results for the world to enjoy.
