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 Pinhao 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.
90 Points Wine Spectator - A fruity style, with luscious plum, raspberry and cherry flavors that are deep and rich. Asian spice and dark chocolate notes linger on the fresh, minerally finish. Drink now through 2025. 11,500 cases imported.
90 points Wine Advocate - The non-vintage Warrior Reserve is a more fruit-driven, less complex style of port. Big, full-bodied, muscular and rich with lots of red and black fruit, licorice, white chocolate and coffee notes, this beauty should keep for another decade.
