95+ points, For the Love of Port
“Simply put this is one of the truly great Warre’s produced in modern times. It is essentially an exuberant, young and massively fruited wine and at the same time, so very approachable that it is easy to perceive this as elegant. Yet the underlying structural components are profound and this fine VP will drink well for another 3-4 decades. It just may be my all time favorite Port by this producer. Lush boysenberry fruit is packed tightly and although ‘concentrated’ doesn’t quite aptly express how vibrant and densely fruited this wine is, the seductive come hither nature along with the suave tannins provide for one delicious drink. If you don’t own any yet, you really should seek out some of this fabulous juice.”

“One of the finest Warre’s I have ever tasted this opaque purple-colored 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, licorice-scented and flavored raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. This is a profound example of Warre vintage Port.”

“The most intensely dark of all the Symington’s 94s. Very sweet, lovely flavor, perfect balance, good length.”

About The Winery
The history of the Warre family in Portugal dates back to William Warre, who was born in India in 1706, where his parents and grandparents were long established members of the East India Company. In 1729, he arrived in Portugal and became a partner in the export company, Messrs. Clark, Thornton & Warre, which exported Portuguese wine among other goods. By the close of the 18th century, Warre's had become one of the leading companies in the Port wine trade. His grandson, another William Warre, continued and grew the business while also maintaining an outstanding military career, contributing substantially towards the recovery of Portugal's independence.

The Symington family's ancestry in the Port trade spans a period of over 350 years, through 13 generations. They are descended from Andrew James Symington and Beatrice Atkinson who were married in Oporto in 1891. Andrew James arrived as a young man from Scotland in 1882 and was admitted to partnership in the firm of Warre & Co. in 1905 and in 1908 he became the soul owner of Warre & Co. Currently six members of the Symington family (five from the 13th generation in the Port trade) are actively involved in Warre's day-to-day management, with the dedication and long-term commitment that are unique to a family-run business. From the vineyards through the winemaking, aging, and blending, a member of the family is directly responsible for every bottle of Warre's Port produced. The family's commitment to its wines is stronger than ever after 350 years, an unparalleled tradition in the Port trade.
