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.

2008 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage "Unfiltered" Port

93 points Decanter: "Open, opulent wild mint and berry fruit nose. Rich, succulent summer fruit on the palate: plums and cherries, backed by firm, stony tannins with a touch of black pepper.

Fonseca "Terra Bella" Reserve Port

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Terra Prima Organic Port is just terrific. The nose is so fresh and well defined with blackcurrant fruit infused with faint touches of mandarin, dark cherries, fresh dates and liquorice. The palate is nicely balanced with slightly tarry black fruit. It offers lifted acidity and a spirituous nature without any loss in tension and there is a pleasant kick of volatility towards the refined, harmonious finish. I appreciate the edginess and tension on this wine, a sense of elegance that I usually associate more with Taylors than with a Fonseca. This comes ...Read More »

Ramos Pinto White Port

White port is one of the world's most civilized aperitifs, and we here at K&L think that the Ramos Pinto is one of the best. Made from Malvasia Fina and Codega grapes (mostly grown on the Ramos Pinto estate) that are picked quite ripe, this wine is then aged for three years in traditional port barrels called "pipes." Full-bodied and exotic, it is incomparable on the rocks with an orange twist. Since it has had extended barrel age and is fortified, it is no problem to have keep it in the refrigerator for a month after opening it, but I doubt it will last ... Read More »

Graham's 10-year-old Tawny Port

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Powered with acidity and its firm structure, this is an intensely dry, concentrated, powerful wine. It certainly has wines in the blend that are older than 10 years, yet it is definitely a 10-Year Old in style, as the fresh fruit to finish confirms." (8/2006)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. Drink now." (12/2010) Jancis Robinson: "What handsome squat bottles Graham's tawnies come in...

The bright finish is filled with spice and supported by fresh acidity." (10/2013)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a hugely dry, burnt style, very concentrated.

Drier than some aged tawnies, it has a smoky character to go with its ripe feel."

2000 Taylor Vintage Port (375ml)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Among the most saturated blue/purple/black-colored examples of the vintage, Taylor's 2000 tastes like a young vintage of Chateau Latour on steroids. Aromas of graphite, blackberry liqueur, creme de cassis and smoke jump from the glass. Spectacularly concentrated and enormously endowed, with sweetness allied to ripe tannin, decent acidity, and layer upon layer of fruit and extract, this is the leading candidate for the port of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040." (10/2002)96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This was perhaps the most prototypically 'Taylor' wine of the vertical, wit ...Read More »

A field blend of typical grapes, it comes in at 157 grams per liter of residual sugar. In the overall context of amazing old Colheitas, it may not take 1st prize, but it will strike anyone who loves them as pretty fine.

Quinta do Infantado Ruby Port

Quinta do Infantado has been a leader in estate-bottled Ports since 1979. Until that time, all exported Ports had to be shipped in bulk to Vila Nova de Gaia, 60 miles west of the Douro Valley, where they were bottled and shipped. This practice effectively prevented small private producers from exporting their wines, since the cost of running an operation in another town was prohibitive for these vineyard owners. In 1986 the laws were changed. The Quinta is based in Pinhão, specifically in the subdistrict of Gontelho where the best Port vineyards may be f... Read More »

Returning after one 45 minutes that nose has shut up shop.

It is essentially a non-designated, barrel aged, vintage white port, all from the 1973 vintage.

Very layered and structured. Much better than I remember. Impressive. (Web Only-2008)"93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blackberries, licorice, and melted asphalt stand out in this full-bodied, beautifully made vintage port's moderately intense bouquet. It is not one of the great Graham's ports, and is less sweet than normal, but it is full-bodied, rich, concentrated, and impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025. (R ...Read More »

Quinta do Tedo Tawny Port

Quinta do Tedo is a single quinta Port house owned by Vincent Bouchard (you may have heard of Bouchard Pere et Fils as well as Domaine William Fevre, both owned by his relatives). Vincent, however, chose to strike out on his own many years ago, first by working for a cooperage and then by seeking out a property where he could produce delicious wine as organically as possible. He found his spot at Quinta do Tedo, which is now making some very stylish ports. This is a lovely tawny, a fresher, younger and fruitier style that is not too sweet and has just t... Read More »

2000 Cockburn's Vintage Port

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Potentially one of the most compelling wines of the vintage, this inky black/purple-colored 2000 exhibits notes of scorched earth, melted asphalt, blackberry liqueur, and a pungent, penetrating intensity that reverberates in the mouth as well as the head. Full-bodied, massive, and concentrated, with a 45-second finish, this thrilling effort should drink well between 2010-2035. (RP)" (10/2002)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated black-ruby. Superripe but vibrant aromas of crystallized black fruits, tar and mossy earth. Thick, dense, seamless and very young, with complex notes of esp ...Read More »

1994 Dow's Vintage Port

97 points Wine Spectator: "A blackstrap, powerful Port. Black, with intense aromas of raspberries, raisins, flowers and stems. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a long, rich finish. Tannins pull at your palate. A wine for the future." (12/1999)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The massive 1994 is unquestionably the finest Dow I have tasted since the 1977. This opaque purple-colored wine is not as developed or flamboyant as Fonseca, but it is super-concentrated and multi-layered, with huge masses of fruit and some tannin in the finish. This is a slightly drier style than Fonseca or Graham's, but it appears to be a ...Read More »

1977 Taylor Vintage Port

97 points Wine Spectator: "Good ruby color still. The nose is fresh, with lots of crushed berry and plum, with a hint of piecrust. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a caressing texture. This delivers loads of complex fruit and spiciness. Medium-sweet. A beauty. Will improve for decades, but why wait? (Web Only-2008)"96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness th ...Read More »

1994 Fonseca Vintage Port Top Pick!
1994 Fonseca Vintage Port

100 points Wine Spectator: "(1997 Wine of the Year & Cellar Selection) Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries, boasting loads of crushed grape, violet and berry character. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge, it's a long-term, great Port." (4/1997)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most spectacular 1994s, this opaque purple-colored wine is an exotic, flambo ...Read More »
