1994 Vintage Port Description ...
The fruit for the Warre's 1994 Vintage Port was sourced primarily from two vineyards, Quinta da Cavadinha and Quinta do Retiro Antigo. In addition, Quinta da Telhada acquired by Cockburn's in 1980, replanted in 1986 and finally in 2006 the Symington Family purchased the Quinta for Warre's. Located in the heart of the Douro Superior, Quinta da Telhada is one of the most remote in the Douro Valley and has an A-rating, the highest possible quality designation. The vines average age are 20 years old, with over 50% of the vineyard planted with Touriga Nacional and to this day are still handpicked.
Wine Advocate 1996 - Robert Parker - Warre's 1994 Vintage Port ...
"One of the finest Warre's I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-coloured wine is made in a drier style, yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impressive length. Tasters should note of the wealth of peppery, liquorice-scented and flavoured raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. This is a profound example of Warre vintage port."
