2003 Warre's Vintage Port (750ml)
Touriga Nacional from Douro, Portugal
B-21 Top Recommendation
Read More

A very brief visit to the heart of Port country last summer, both into the vineyards far upstream on the slopes of the Douro River Valley and the Port Lodges in Oporto where centuries of commerce continues, made it clear the opulent success of Port in both 2016 and 2017. The vintages were the buzz at the lunch/reception at Warre's and of course tasting told the rest of story. Both offered here as well as some mature Port for your decadent decanting pleasures.


93WA 93W&S 92V

Black pepper, sealing wax, spices, and toast are found in the nose of the potentially exceptional 2003 Warre Vintage Port. A concentrated, backward effort, its youthful, classically ungenerous, masculine character reveals black pepper laced dark fruits. Silky-textured in its immensely endowed mid-palate, this top-flight effort displays an admirably long, tannin-filled finish. It will require serious cellaring. Projected maturity: 2030-2050.

93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue # 161 - Oct 2005)

Beautifully perfumed with brilliant florals, spicy scents of esteva and cinnamon bark, this is a great young vintage Warre's. It's luscious and chocolate-rich in the middle, then classically gripping in the end. The spiciness lasts, as does the potent depth of fruit, buffering the heat of the wine. This should be accessible early on, yet it has the structure to last years. Drink 2015-'30.

93 points, Wine & Spirits (Dec 2005)

Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Broad, dense and deep, with compelling purity, lift and sweetness and captivating flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and minerals. Finishes with broad, sweet tannins and superb chewiness and length. Has the structure and depth for extended cellaring.

Warre Otima 10yr Tawny Port (500ml)
From Portugal

93WA 91WS 91W&S

The non-vintage Otima 10-Year Old Tawny Port reveals a medium ruby/amber/garnet color, loads of kirsch and cedar intermixed with a touch of brown sugar in the nose, rich, full-bodied flavors, a burgeoning complexity and big aromatics. This is a full-bodied, silky smooth Tawny Port that should age easily for 8-10+ years.

93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue # 211 - Feb 2014)

Well-honed, with a touch of sweetness to the plush flavors of butterscotch, pear tart, almond and vanilla. Orange peel and dried ginger accents emerge on the seductively spicy finish. Drink now. 8,500 cases imported.

91 points, Wine Spectator (Sep 2015)

Light amber-tawny in color, this wine is delicately balanced between freshness and age. There’s brisk, tart peach flavor along with more mature tones of pale berries and woodsy mushrooms. Hints of tobacco smoke add to the wine’s elegance.

2010 Chateau Beaucastel Hommage a Jacques Perrin (1.5L)
Mourvedre from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône, France

98+WA

Tight, dense and backward, the 2010 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin was one of the least approachable wines in the lineup, yet certainly has incredible potential. Offering lots of liquid minerality, crushed rock, blueberry, truffle and cassis, it’s massive and concentrated on the palate, with building tannin, good acidity and a firm, focused feel that begs for cellaring. Hide these in the cellar for another decade.

2016 Chateau Climens (750ml)
Semillon from Barsac, Bordeaux, France

97WA 96V

The 2016 Climens was tasted from the 12 different lots that will go into the Grand Vin, with some selected from the Deuxième Vin, Cyprès de Climens. As usual, I had to assemble them in my mind and relate commonalities, though at a négoçiant a week later I re-tasted four preprepared micro-blends. I found much elegance this year. It is not a powerful Climens in the making and even with the higher alcohol lots that reached 14.9%, you could not feel any warmth and the wines maintained the tension. Some lots displayed saline finishes, perhaps a little more than usual. Perhaps the most important factor was just how "Barsac" they all tasted. Sometimes some lots can taste more Sauternes-like in style, but not this year.

95-97 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Issue # 230 - Apr 2017)

I tasted the 2016 Climens from four separate lots identified by location, harvest dates, alcohol, residual sugar and the percentage each lot represents of the harvest. The four wines were remarkably different. The Nord was both plush and tropical-leaning, yet with notable freshness, while the Sud managed to be both deep and also light on its feet. I found the Ouest to be the most precise and aromatically lifted of the samples, while the Est was the most concentrated. A simple, impromptu blend of the four lots suggests the 2016 Climens is shaping up to be a magnificent Barsac. The interplay of the various components is quite remarkable.

2018 Caparzo Rosso di Montalcino (750ml)
Sangiovese from Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

93V

Lively red color. Exceptionally perfumed nose reminds of red fruits, menthol, coffee and fresh herbs. Dense and fresh with flavors closely echoing the aromas. Boasts outstanding acid-fruit-tannin balance and a silky-sweet mouthfeel; I tasted two different bottles just to be sure, and based at least on what I tasted, this Rosso is a real knockout, in fact one of the very best from the 2018 vintage.
