From the outstanding 2011 vintage and scoring 93-5/100 Parker points "The Warres Vintage was picked beginning on September 18 at Quinta da Cavindha, with fruit also sourced from Quinta do Retiro and Quinta da Telhada. It is a blend of 37% Touriga Nacional, 23% Tinta Franca and 40% mixture of old vines. There is a lovely sea spray note on the 2011 Warres that emerges after ten minutes in the glass. It is nicely defined with a tangible mineral component. The palate is very well-balanced with fine tannins, very well-judged acidity and a languorous feel, as if everything is in place and it does not want to show off. This is a lovely, refined 2011 one of the most elegant 2011s. This is a classic Warres. 3,000 cases declared. " Drink now - 2050.

An outstanding Vintage Port year with all the major port houses declaring. Winemaker Charles Symington (Maker of their main brands, including Graham Vintage Port , Dow Vintage Port , Warre Vintage Port , Cockburn Vintage Port , Quinta do Vesúvio Vintage Port and Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port) described the 2011 Vintage Ports as "characterized by an unusual combination of elegance with power and structure." Paul Symington, CEO, emphasized their marked minerality with schist-edged tannins, and Charles Symington cited an attractive "fragrant wet-earth scent," which could be credited to the success of the Touriga Franca grape. The winemaker David Guimaraens stated "The 2011s stand out for the purity of the fruit and the quality of the tannins, which are silky and well-integrated, but provide plenty of structure,"
Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman was founded in 1692 in Vila Nova de Gaia by Job Bearsley, becoming Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman when Joseph Taylor, John Alexander Fladgate and Morgan Yeatman formed a partnership in 1838. Taylor Fladgate owns the brands of Fonseca, Fonseca-Guimaraens, Taylors, and Croft which it bought in 2001 and whose first vintage was the 2003 vintage. Taylor Fladgate invented the style of late-bottled vintage port in the 1960's and continues to use traditional methods (including foot treading in stone lagares) to make an outstanding range of vintage ports.
