Critical Acclaim

ST91+ Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 2003

"Full medium ruby. Complex, perfumed nose combines crystallized blackberry and cassis, licorice, violet, spice cake, bitter chocolate and mint. Thick, dense and powerful, with slightly grapey, medicinal flavors of black fruits, violet, licorice, dark chocolate and spices. This shows terrific intensity, purity of flavor and length on the palate, with solid but fine tannins. Ultimately quite seamless and silky, even though still young." (91+? pts.)

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Oct 2002

"Straightforward yet intense, ripe black raspberry liqueur and cassis scents are followed by a medium to full-bodied, elegant, restrained, balanced port with moderately high tannin as well as outstanding purity. It is a vintage port with impeccable finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2007–2020." (91 pts.)

SP91 Wine Spectator Feb 20, 2003

"Lovely floral aromas of berries, violets and minerals. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a racy finish. A harmonious yet well-toned Warre. Reminds me of the 1991. Best after 2010." (91 pts.)

WS90 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2002

"Majestic Port in its purple vestments, this vintage of Warre’s 2000 is classical and complete. Often the most immediately accessible of the Symington’s vintage range, Warre’s offers a bright, gripping richness, sweet and open. It’s enjoyable now for the jasmine and other floral aspects of the fruit, yet at ten or twenty years from the vintage, it will be that much more satisfying." (90 pts.)

Portugal

Portugal is most famous (and justifiably so) for its Port wines, fortified wines that are typically sweet and often served with dessert. Port wines come in many styles such as Tawny, Late Bottled Vintage, etc, and are classified by how they were produced.

Besides Port, however, Portugal is also one of the fastest-rising wine countries in the world (as far as quality and production) when it comes to table wines. You'll find some unbelievable values in Portuguese table wines, with grapes like Touriga Nacional at the forefront.
