An excellent vintage which is probably developing into a wine as fine as the 1963. Very fine nose and balance. Produced in the year of Warre's 300th anniversary. This wine has now reached its full maturity and is ready for drinking. As it ages further, it will begin to gently develop into more a tawny style wine.

Wine SpectatorWonderful fruit on the palate, but slightly one-dimensional. Medium to deep red, with earthy cassis and tomato aromas, full-bodied, with concentrated black cherry flavors, medium tannins and a long, sweet finish. Quite delicate.

James Suckling, 1989

Wine AdvocateThis house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good tawny called Nimrod. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop, and while they never quite have the voluptuous richness of a Dow, Graham, or Fonseca, they have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style. The 1970 remains rather unyielding but still impressive.

Robert Parker, January 1989
