2011 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "David Guimaraens blends this wine from Fonseca vintage lots that do not make the final cut, along with wines initially designated for the LBV. He bottles the wine unfined and unfiltered, intending it to be decanted. His 2011 is remarkable: It has the succulent fruit depths of the Fonseca style, and the intensity of a Vintage-level wine. You could quibble and say the tannins are not Vintage quality, with some rhubarb-like astringency, or the wine is too big and powerful for an LBV. But you're not liekly to find many LBV's with this full-on ripeness, extra ...Read More »

1967 Taylor Fladgate "Very Old Single Harvest" Tawny Port

98 points Wine Spectator: "This draws you in, with aromas of warm halva and toasted pistachio giving way to a wide range of buckwheat, toasted sesame, walnut husk, menthol and licorice root notes that refuse to break down in the mouth. Exhibits remarkable length, with ample viscosity matched by steely tension, putting this in rarified air. Drink now. From Portugal.—J.M."

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. (RP)" (1/1989) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby-red.

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.

Taylor 20 Year Old Tawny Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A complex and satisfying Tawny, this sits on the cusp of maturity with freshness continuing to infuse its deepening flavors. 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." (12/2016) 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.

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.

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 delightful 1999. On the nose, fruits macerated in liqueur leads to a well balanced, yet unctuous palate, perfectly sweet and admirably poised.

1988 Poças Colheita Port

There’s gentle tension from the acidity, highlighting jasmine notes and the quiet details in the flavor in the finish, where the wine feels soft and complex." (12/2016) K&L Notes: Colheitas are single vintage dated, barrel aged ports, so they end up having more in common with tawny ports than they do vintage. Given that this is between a 20 and 30 year old tawny in age, but still closer in price to 20 year o... Read More »

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?

Best after 2009. (JS, Web-2008)" 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby. Lightly floral aromas of blackc ...Read More »

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. It comes in at 106 grams per liter of residual sugar. This opens sweet and luscious, with the considerable power lurking underneath. There are only hints of what is going to happen. 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. The next day it is just beautiful, show ...Read More »

1977 Graham's Vintage Port (1.5L)

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. (RP)" (1/1989) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, mint and violet. Full-bodied, with medium sweetness and lots of berry and cherry fruit. Very fruity and fresh. Long and lively. Delicious now, but w ...Read More »

Niepoort 10 Year Old Tawny Port

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 with a long cork. This is a lovely 10 Year Tawny, elegant in the mid-palate, but complex, precise and focused. There's a bit of a bite on the finish, giving it some length to go with the flavor. The next day it was more about power, with considerable intensity of old-tawny flavor as well, more than I normally see in a 10 Year Old. This is a fine one for the category. It showed best around 56 degrees Fahrenheit. Don't drink it too warm. (MS)" (3/2017) Wine Spectator: "Ripe, with plenty of grip to the dried apricot and hazeln ...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. The 1983 is rich, concentrated, very fruity, and magnificently perfumed... (RP)" (1/1989) Jancis Robinson: "Mid crimson and slightly grey. Very sweet and round and slightly raisiny. 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 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. (JS, 1989)" 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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 the time, flashes of eucalyptus leading ...Read More »

1985 Taylor Vintage Port

93 points Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try. (Web Only—2008)" Decanter: "Tight, concentrated maturing fruit. Full, concentrated, sweet, complex, enduring length." (12/2005) Jancis Robinson: "Still going very strong from a bottle via a decanter. (The Robertsons served Fonseca 1985 at their dinner that night to celebrate Fonseca's bicentenary.) Lovely hazelnuts nose and soft ...Read More »

1970 Graham's Vintage Port Top Pick!
1970 Graham's Vintage Port

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is an extremely full-bodied, powerful wine, but it still retains a classy balance. Deep ruby, with chocolate and berry aromas, full-bodied, with anise and dried cherry flavors, full, hard tannins and a long finish. Good now but a few more yearsof bottle age would improve it. 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.

1977 Quarles Harris Vintage Port

Jancis Robinson: "Healthy ruby with a brick rim. Quite subtle already; there is some perceptible evolution of colour and flavour here. Mineral rather than fruit flavours dominate. Very big and full. Very, very sweet indeed - in fact I thought it was from a Portuguese house. This wine delivers a pretty good combination of power, interest and, especially, sweetness. This is not a wine to be ignored! But it's a very particular style....without enormous tannic reserves. (JR)" (8/2005) Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby-garnet. Aromas of fresh cherry and hints of custard pie. Medium-bodied and medium ...Read More »

Ramos Pinto Quinta 20 Year Old Tawny Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "This glossy wine sustains a delicate freshness in its floral fruit. That bright note of tart strawberries and jasmine holds to springtime, while the figgier richness and detailed tannins provide a structure that feels warm and autumnal. It’s a delicious contrast, the elements finely interwoven, a satisfying tawny to extend a holiday meal." (12/2014) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It comes in at 122.3 grams per liter of residual sugar and was aged in wood of varying sizes and types (Portuguese and French oak, chestnut and cherry tree). Average in concentration, this is a friendly 20-year ...Read More »
