Cavadinha is the quinta that forms the backbone of Warre's Vintage Ports. With its high elevation, it imparts the cool, dry style of the brand. This wine, from a year that was not a declared vintage, is now ready to drink for its rich fruitiness, although it will still mature for many years. Jammy blackberry flavors are balanced with layers of acidity and sweet tannins. Drink now, or wait until 2022.
