Smoky, burnt, with lots of dried cherry, apricot, and crushed flower aromatics. Notes of same, with hints of alcohol on the palate. Very enjoyable.
Deep, rich ruby color. On the nose bursting with lovely black fruit combined with a spicy complexity. Warre’s 2000 LBV has a palate of underlying richness and intensity with well rounded blackberry fruit and wonderfully structured tannins which lead to a long and lingering finish.
