Ferreira "Duque de Braganca" 20 Year Old Tawny Port

98 points Decanter: "Quince marmalade on the nose and palate. Refined, soft and seamless with the merest dusting of tannin on the finish. Worthy Platinum Best in Category at the DWWA." (12/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Always great, this is softer, less intense than in the past. But there is still great richness, and power as well as smoothness, burnt caramel blending well with the spirit, and finishing with its inimitable fresh acidity. (RV)" (11/2007) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, smooth and polished, exhibiting an array of dried apricot, pear and guava flavors that are accented by plenty of apple wood smoke notes.

Ramos Pinto 30 Year Old Tawny Port

95 points Wine & Spirits: "People in Douro argue over the optimal age for a Tawny. As an outsider, it’s easy to know it when you taste it. There’s no mistaking the freshness in this wine, though it lives mysteriously in complete harmony with its aged character, provoking an immediate sense of pleasure (the yum response) followed by an extended moment of meditation. Are you tasting dried cherries? Smelling the scent of mushrooms in the forest? The fresh zest of an orange or the mineral sense of tannins turned to silk? Whatever that fragrant, delicate thing may be, it’s likely to ca ...Read More »

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.

I love the crème caramel and cooked apple tart on the finish. Some pecan pie. Crazy." (10/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2013* A complex and full-bore tawny, with deep, intense flavors of orange cream, glazed apricot, baked peach and roasted pineapple that are balanced by concentrated chocolate and toffee notes.

2010 Ferreira Late Bottled Vintage Port

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Late Bottled Vintage Port is an unfiltered blend of 55% Touriga Franca, 25% Touriga Nacional, 10% Tinta Roriz, 5% Sousão and 5% Tinto Cão bottled in April, 2014.

Hold this puppy open for a couple of hours--or, better yet, try it the next day--and you'll see the lurking structure. It doesn't stint on intensity of flavor, though.

Graham's "Six Grapes" Port

Taylor 20 Year Old Tawny Port

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 and comes in at 111 grams per liter of residual sugar. On first taste, this was simply Taylor: big, concentrated and serious. It was all that and a bag of chips, but over a couple of day it also demonstrated far more elegance. It seemed arguably better balanced than the 10 year old Tawny this issue. Simply filling the mouth on first taste, this shows fine complexity for its age and it does everything else rather brilliantly. Succulent and inviting, it finishes with waves of concentrated flavors.

Taylor 10 Year Old Tawny Port

Easily the 10 with the most weight in the Fladgate group's lineup this issue, it is a rather powerful 10 year old Tawny with plenty of pop, the biggest and baddest of the trio (Fonseca, Croft and this). There is very fine concentration of flavor for a 10 year old Tawny. If I had a quibble, the alcohol shows at times, especially early on and rather notably when drunk a little too warm.

This is unctuous in its texture, but bright in its flavor. (RV)" (3/2010) Wine & Spirits: "...this is herbal and intriguingly rustic. Wood tannins balance the herbal sweetness.

Best from 1990 through 1993. (Web Only-1989) (JS)" 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 Wa ...Read More »

1972 Graham's Single Harvest Tawny

94 points Wine Spectator: "An elegant aged tawny, with plenty of creamy, luscious flavors of butterscotch, crème brûlée, glazed apricot and sandalwood. Offers a silky mouthfeel, with a long, well-spiced finish backed by firm acidity. (KM)" (6/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Made just before the revolution. Just nine casks made. This would have been vintage worthy but they didn’t have the courage to make vintage port. But it was the first single harvest to be aged in barrel for selling as a Single Harvest. This has spent 40+ years in cask. 'You can always play with blending an old tawny as opposed to a vintag ...Read More »

1985 Fonseca Vintage Port (Previously $140)

96 points Decanter: "A troublesome vintage for many shippers, but Fonseca 1985 never fails to impress: tight-knit, dense and minty with a core of concentration and pure berry fruit. Succulent, wonderfully fresh and vibrant at 30 years old. Peacock’s tail of a finish. A real ‘wow’ of a wine that promises to last a lifetime. (RM)" (11/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Fonseca is still youthful in appearance with hardly any ageing on the rim. The nose offers kirsch, sloes and Christmas cake. With time, there are subtle notes of dried fig and dates beginning to emerge and add to the complexity. The ...Read More »

1983 Dow's Vintage Port

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977.

Slight rustic edge but very ripe and round and lively with a certain freshness and punch. Long and powerful. Looking good for the future, A confident wine. 17.5/20 points." (10/2004)

1963 Dow's Vintage Port Top Pick!
1963 Dow's Vintage Port

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Perfectly mature, this Port's tannins have softened over the past 40-plus years, leaving it lushly textured and displaying rich fig and chocolate flavors. Finishes long, picking up a touch of almond to go with the fig, flavors Symington calls -Dow’s hallmarks.- Drink now-2015, longer if you prefer very mature wines." (3/2008) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale brick colour with fragrant scents of mossy wood, potpourri, cinnamon and dried mulberry plus a whiff of espresso. A mature, well balanced Port comes through in the mouth with high acidity cutting through the lingering dried berry ...Read More »

1963 Graham's Vintage Port

97 points Wine Spectator: "This is a monumental wine with a great balance of fruit and tannin. Medium ruby with a garnet edge, enticing nose of bitter chocolate and plums, full-bodied, with chocolate and raspberry flavors, medium tannins and a very long finish. (1989)" 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at dinner at Christies boardroom. What a stunning 1963 vintage port this is! The bouquet draws you in, does not drag you in with its alcohol and reveals a fresh, well defined nose with a nutty edge, hints of cigar box and allspice. The palate is beautifully balanced, understated on the entry but building all th ...Read More »

Niepoort 20-year-old Tawny Port

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deliciously satisfying wood-aged Port. It has an intense fruitiness, with layers of acidity and oxidated notes. It's concentrated, yet shows lightness and poise. (RV)" (6/2012) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (10/2004) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A refined and delicate tawny, with pure-tasting flavors of dried mango, cherry and blood orange, supported by fresh acidity. Pale in color, with luscious spicy notes that linger on the fresh finish. (KM)" (12/2014) K&L Notes: Writing on 20-year tawny Port generally, writer Richard Mayson says in Decanter: "One of the most graceful of wines, tawny port comes in a... Read More »

1970 Croft Vintage Port

Vinous: "Still firm ruby and lots of fruit and interest. So full of life I wondered when served it blind whether it was as old as the seventies. Croft were at their peak then under Robin Reid and it shows in this vigorous wine. It would have tasted even better in glasses bigger than the Buckingham Palace port glasses, handsomely engraved though they are! 18/20 points" (3/2014) Wine Spectator: "Refined, supple and fresh. Medium ruby, with a nose of plums and black pepper, medium-bodied, with medium to fine tannins and sweet black pepper and fruit flavors. A lovely glass of Port. Wil ...Read More »
