Tasting Notes For Warre's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2009

Warre's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2009 is a refined and expressive offering that showcases a deep and intense ruby-red color, foreshadowing the richness within. The nose is an intricate bouquet of dark fruits, where blackberries and black cherries intertwine with a touch of cassis, creating an aromatic profile that is both opulent and inviting. Subtle hints of cocoa and a whisper of black pepper add depth, promising a nuanced olfactory experience.

On the palate, this Late Bottled Vintage Port reveals a symphony of concentrated flavors. Ripe blackberries and plump black cherries take center stage, delivering a palate that is both indulgent and complex. The wine's velvety texture enhances the luxurious experience, offering a well-rounded and harmonious mouthfeel.

Critic Ratings

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 93:
Long maturation in the bottle after wood aging has given this wine great quality and style. It has a dry edge that is typical of Warre's, along with mature dried fruit and spice flavors. The wine is fine; it's ready to drink now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 92:
The 2009 Late Bottled Vintage Port is the new release, although hardly a new wine. It is a traditional Douro field blend, heavy on Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca. It was bottled unfiltered in 2013 with a long cork after four years in cask and then held back at Warre's lodge for bottle aging before release. It comes in with 109 grams per liter of residual sugar. It's pretty spectacular. This unfiltered LBV is expressive and delicious. With the extra aging, it is also velvety and harmonious, but this certainly has power to spare the next day. It has the depth to coat the palate and fill the mouth too. With 90 minutes of air, it is very fresh, but it finally shows welcome hints of complexity. It does everything well and most things brilliantly. It should hold beautifully, at least for 20 years from its vintage date, but I'm guessing 30 may be more like it. For now, let's be a little cautious, but if you have good storage, there is no reason to worry about it anytime soon.
