Extremely floral and fruity with hints of lilacs and crushed fruit. Full body with refined tannins integrated with a solid core of fruit, and a rich, round texture. This is lightly sweet and follows through to a long, long finish. 3,000 cases produced of this mechanically trodden wine. Try in 2022.

The Warre's Vintage was picked beginning on September 18 at Quinta da Cavindha, with fruit also sourced from Quinta do Retiro and Quinta da Telhada. It is a blend of 37% Touriga Naçional, 23% Tinta Franca and 40% mixture of old vines. There is a lovely sea spray note on the 2011 Warre's that emerges after ten minutes in the glass. It is nicely defined with a tangible mineral component. The palate is very well-balanced with fine tannins, very well-judged acidity and a languorous feel, as if everything is in place and it does not want to show off. This is a lovely, refined 2011 - one of the most elegant 2011s. This is a classic Warre's. 3,000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013.

The nose has a heady floral quality a flower bed of violets and rockroses with hints of spice a touch of cedar wood. The palate has the richness of black cherry and blackcurrant sumptuous sensuous with there is enough freshness to balance and give great finesse. The tannins give backbone yet are silky and the finish has a lovely mineral streak.

Grown at a relatively high altitude and thus more elegant, feminine and fragrant in style. Floral with hints of milk chocolate. This is a beautiful wine rather than a muscular, body builder.
