- Warre's Porto Late Bottle Vintage 2003 Product #30127 (In Stock)
A very "vintage-like" LBV that will improve in cellar. Not fined or filtered, so plan to decant off the heavy sediment.
"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 expressive. This seems young, with a long life ahead. It is far, far better on Days 2 and 3. This is pretty fine."Wine Advocate 93 points
