Warres Warrior Port is dark red colour, with a seductive rich perfume of ripe plums and cherries. On the palate complex, with an excellent structure and a long lingering finish.
Background: Warrior is the oldest mark of Port in the world, having been shipped continuously since the 1750's. The name Warrior was branded on the casks of Warre's finest Reserve Ports since the earliest days of the firm. The traditional style has been maintained over the years and it is today a classic full-bodied wine with wonderful richness and balance. Warrior is drawn from Warre's finest quintas in the Pinhão and Rio Torto valleys that produce Warre's Vintage Ports. The firm's head winemaker, Peter Symington, will select vats of particularly rich and fruity Port to set aside for maturing in oak casks in the lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia.
