Graham's 20-year-old Tawny Port

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 "Six Grapes" Port

Wine Enthusiast: "A dry wine, firmly tannic, although also with acidity and black currant fruit. Spices and licorice add interest, while the tannins finish this attractive wine." (12/2011) Wine Spectator: "Lots of sweet dark plum and sweet cherry flavors dominate, with plenty of milk chocolate. Clean and balanced on the straightforward finish." (12/2010) K&L Notes: From the Producer: "Six Grapes is one of Graham's original Port marques.

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 »

1985 Fonseca Vintage Port

With time, there are subtle notes of dried fig and dates beginning to emerge and add to the complexity. The palate is medium-bodied and beautifully balanced on the supple, rounded entry. It is not quite as complex as the aromatics, with dates and dried fig, the finish mellow and refined. It is very elegant for a Fonseca, weighty but supremely well focused.

A field blend of typical grapes, it comes in at 157 grams per liter of residual sugar.

The world of Port wine is not simply a matter of vintage, LBV, ruby and tawny. There are, of course, the lovely vintage-dated tawnies (colheitas), white ports of varying sweetness levels, and examples such as the Casa de Santa Eufemia White Tawny. It is essentially a non-designated, barrel aged, vintage white port, all from the 1973 vintage.

2003 Croft Vintage Port

96 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous aromas of blueberries and dried flowers follow through to a sweet, full-bodied palate. Velvety and round, with lovely fruit. Long finish. Best after 2015." (4/2006)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Croft has a relatively exotic nose for this Port, with cherry liqueur, peat, licorice and melted dark chocolate on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe black fruit. It is plush and heady, the acidity lower than the 2007 or 2009, so that the finish is rounded, decadent and spicy, without the tension and class of other vintages. It is a hedonistic delight, ...Read More »

2003 Warre's Vintage Port

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Black pepper, sealing wax, spices, and toast are found in the nose of the potentially exceptional 2003 Warre Vintage Port. A concentrated, backward effort, its youthful, classically ungenerous, masculine character reveals black pepper laced dark fruits. Silky-textured in its immensely endowed mid-palate, this top-flight effort displays an admirably long, tannin-filled finish. It will require serious cellaring. Projected maturity: 2030-2050. (PR)" (10/2005)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Broad, dense a ...Read More »

1997 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A delicious, forward, dark saturated ruby/purple-colored port, this 1997 reveals copious quantities of jammy, grapy, black fruit flavors intermixed with earth and spice, full body, and silky tannin. It should drink well soon, but last for two decades." (1/2000) Wine Spectator: "Prune and hints of aniseed and stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. Little simple. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. (Web-2008) Rated 90 points previously with the following review: "A fresh and dark Port, with lovely floral, berry and cherry aromas.

1985 Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My experience with Smith-Woodhouse is limited. Is the 1985 the sleeper of the vintage? An astonishing amount of creamy, black-cherry and chocolate-scented fruit fills the nose. On the palate, this full-bodied wine is loaded with extract, great length, and has super finish with plenty of fruit and tannin in proper balance." (1/1989) Wine Spectator: "I have tasted this blind with all the other big-name '85s and it often holds its own. Medium deep ruby, with lovely violet aromas, full-bodied, with plenty of grip, full tannins and a powerful finish. (Web-1989)" K&L Notes: Produced from fru... Read More »
