Warre's Warrior Port "Special Reserve" wine review by (PB)

This sale wine cost me $15 and is the best value port I have had in years. It is an opaque cherry red with good color, and sweet ripe prunes with traces of ripe cherry, faint cocoa notes but alcohol tends to be a bit pushy on the nose.

In the mouth this wine is thick and velvety with sweet licorice and a chocolate rear. The finish just lingers on and on. This is worth hunting down. I think the non-sale price is around $20; either way this is a nice value. Raise a glass of sweet velvet!
