Port

Port

Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) below are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.

Ramos Pinto White Port

Wine Spectator: "Great nutty aromas come from the glass and follow into the palate of this sweeter style of white Port. It is rich, packed with almonds and a tangy orange zest edge." (8/2010)

Graham's 10 Year Old Tawny Port

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine is rich, ripe and fruity with good acidity as well as a bite of spirit and old-wood aging. It is well balanced, keeping the freshness of a 10-Year-Old while also showing good signs of its wood aging. Just what a 10-Year-Old should be. (RV)" (12/2014) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This has a zesty, sweet floral aroma, with delicate, well-spiced flavors of apple tart, flan and cocoa powder. The plush, mouthfilling finish of cream, vanilla and raspberry is fresh and balanced. (KM)" (12/2010) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at John E. Fells portfolio tasting.

Graham's 20 Year Old Tawny Port

94 points James Suckling: "A gorgeous tawny with dried figs, caramel, dried raisins and coffee beans. Full-bodied, sweet and delicious. This shows such length and beauty. I love the crème caramel and cooked apple tart on the finish. Some pecan pie. Crazy." (10/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely, with date and persimmon notes that are melded seamlessly, picking up light bitter orange, ginger and green tea accents along the way. Echoes of sweet golden raisin and hazelnut linger on the finish, which is polished and long. A beauty. (JM)" (5/2018) K&L Notes: Graham's was founded in 1820 in Portugal's Douro Valley, and sit...

Ferreira "Quinta do Porto" 10 Year Old Tawny Port

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This rich wine is balanced and ripe, with spice, sweet sultana and raisin fruitiness and a light shot of acidity. The aftertaste brings out fresh red fruits that are cut by the spirit and acidity to leave a full feeling in the mouth.

1977 Graham's Vintage Port

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous.

Quinta do Noval Black Port

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The NV Black cuvée comes half from estate vineyards (the rest is sourced from the Cima Corgo region in the Douro Valley) and is aged two years in larger oak and stainless-steel vats. At 20 bucks, it’s a terrific, forward, sexy Port offering lots of currants, raisins, candied olives, and dried herb aromas and flavors. It’s worth buying." (3/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'Black' is a new blend produced from classic varieties that do not make it into the Quinta do Noval vintage.

There’s brisk, tart peach flavor along with more mature tones of pale berries and woodsy mushrooms. Hints of tobacco smoke add to the wine’s elegance."

(Web-2013)" K&L Notes: Ramos Pinto's non-vintage ruby is a blend of vintages aged in wood for six years or so, where it develops into a fruity, but rounded effort that offers unbelievable pleasure for the buck.

That freshness arrives in bold scents of orange zest and juicy citrus flavors, while the maturity mellows those flavors into layers of Marcona almond, date and sweet oak-smoke notes. It finishes with a hint of schist in the tannins. For fruit and cheese at the end of the meal."

The wine is superb in 1970, as it displays a bouquet of voluptuous complexity, offering up scents of black cherry, plum, cedar, fresh mint, chocolate, a bit of tobacco leaf, and lovely, estery floral topnotes.

Focused and precise, this traditional LBV is notable for its subtle concentration and power. It's not at all jammy, but the expressive fruit lingers and makes it seem richer than it is on opening while the wine's inherent freshness cuts through the mid-palate and gives it a lively feel. The structure is actually better than the fruit--apart from the crisp feel, this has a real backbone. That supports the fruit beautifully and it was even more apparent after some six hours open.

1967 Krohn's Vintage Port Top Pick!
1967 Krohn's Vintage Port

Krohn's Vintage Ports come from a single harvest. Intense fruit, structure, color and flavor, these ports are bottled two years after the harvest and in many cases spend many years maturing in the bottle. In order to maintain richness and power they are neither fined nor filtered, therefore throwing a large amount of sediment as they mature. For this reason, they should be decanted before being served.

Vargellas is widely regarded as one of the great vineyards of the Douro, and this wine is yet another affirmation of its class. Start with a heavy iron pole to pound the schist and crush it into plantable soil. Breathe the scent of esteva, a green, sappy shrub that grows at the high perimeters of the vineyar ...Read More »

1970 Taylor Vintage Port

99 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine's dark garnet color with minimal bricking suggests a relatively youthful wine and this certainly could age longer, although it's also delicious now. Wonderfully complex floral and herbal scents easily move into deep, rich flavors of chocolate and cherries, sprinkled with a healthy dose of Douro minerality and spice. Drink or hold. (JC)" (2/2007) 98 points Wine Spectator: "Clearly lives up to Taylor's superb reputation. Deep ruby, with intense violet and chocolate aromas, full-bodied, with gorgeous fruit flavors, full but well-integrated tannins and an extremely long finish ...Read More »

1970 Fonseca Vintage Port Top Pick!
1970 Fonseca Vintage Port

96 points Wine Spectator: "Some people may enjoy this wine's rather fat, rich and powerful fruit now, but I still find it too young for drinking. Deeply colored, with smoky mint, tar and fruit aromas, full-bodied, with concentrated fruit flavors and plenty of tannins. (JS, 1989)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Vintners Company’s 650th anniversary celebration at Vintners Hall, the Fonseca 1970 was the finest bottle I have encountered. The bouquet opens beautifully with heady scents of clove, ginger, small red cherries, bergamot and allspice, displaying exquisite definition and harmony. The palate fol ...Read More »

1997 Warre's Vintage Port

94 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby. Subtle and rich aromas of prune, spice, juniper berry and leaves. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with big round tannins. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Still very young. It's lost its youthful toughness, but give it a little more time. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Best after 2010. (JM, Web Only-2008)" 90 points Vinous: "Medium ruby. Enticing aromas of cassis, lilac, licorice and mint. Rich, sweet and nicely concentrated; floral and dark berry flavors are fresh and pure. Stylish and seamless. Finishes with even, fine tannins and very good persistence. (ST ...Read More »

2015 Fonseca "Guimaraens" Vintage Port

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Guimaraens Vintage Port is a field blend coming in at 101 grams per liter of residual sugar. This was a tank sample when seen, out of barrel, the final blend and awaiting bottling in a couple of weeks. It should be released by the time this article appears. This is the blend Fonseca releases when there is no "classic" vintage declaration. It is usually intended to be approachable a bit earlier, much like a second wine. It seems pretty impressive this year, though. Round, big and lush, it might well be the best of the 2015s from the Fladgate Part ...Read More »

1975 Feuerheerd's Colheita Port

Originally a port house of German origins, but today Portuguese-owned by members of both the Barros and Van zeller families, Feurheed's is quite popular in Europe, but only recently available to us. We are proud to now carry two of their delicious colheita Ports including this fantastic 1975. Rich aromas show pralines and walnuts, which lead to a lush, nutty palate with candied orange notes, and a lively, engaging palate, that, not unlike The Dude's rug, really help to tie it all together. Fantastic colheita, a great example of the style and highly recom... Read More »
