94 points Axel Probst (The World of Fine Wine): "Transparent dark red color. Elegant and balanced fruity bouquet. The palate also shows the typical complex elegance of the house, with fresh chocolate and a remarkable balanced-fruit structure. Long and multilayered aftertaste. (Issue 57; 2017)"
93 points Wine Spectator: "Deep garnet. Very pretty plum and berry aromas, with hints of honey and toffee. Turns to custard. Full-bodied, sweet and fresh. Firm tannins, with elegance and balance. Will age for a long time, but ready. Generous, but subtle. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Drink now. (2008)"
17/20 Jancis Robinson: "Mid reddish ruby with development. Hint of putty on the nose -- rather odd. Round and sweet and full and easy. Tannins have almost melted. This could certainly be drunk now -- lots of easy, slightly slack, opulence. No pain. Date tasted: 13 Oct 2004. (8/23/05)"
93 points Roy Hersh (For The Love of Port): " Throughout most of the 1990s this was my 'house V' always available to those visiting, as I had purchased several cases at prices never to be seen again. So it's always a treat for me to revisit this particular Port, just like an old friend. Medium-deep shade of strawberry color with a wide pink/light tawny meniscus. On Thanksgiving Eve my brother returned from the cellar and decanted for sediment and although it had no time to really open up, it smelled great with fresh strawberry, spicy cinnamon and graham cracker notes along with mace and pine to really sex it up. It exudes finesse, with a rich mink-like texture, tight rope walkers’ balance and generous spicy redcurrant and sweet grenadine flavors. At thirty five years of age, Warre's ‘77 has entered its mature phase; and ends true to form with splendid length and enjoyment. Best bottles will show the love through the half-century mark. ‘Twas shockingly good, considering the pop ‘n pour scenario. (11/22/12)"
