Winemaker's Notes

The first Warre vintage for 6 years. Very small quantity produced. Excellent wine with a classic peppery flavour from the rich tannins. Full bodied and beautifully aromatic.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark ruby. Subtle and rich aromas of prune, spice, juniper berry and leaves. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with big round tannins. Lasts for minutes on the palate."
94 Points

"Medium ruby. Enticing aromas of cassis, lilac, licorice and mint. Rich, sweet and nicely concentrated; floral and dark berry flavors are fresh and pure. Stylish and seamless. Finishes with even, fine tannins and very good persistence."
90 Points
