K&L Notes

I think we have found a new favorite, not only in the 10-year Tawny category, but possibly in our entire fortified sweet wine collection. This delicious 10 year-old Tawny from the house of Ferreira is a perfectly balanced rendition of the style. Aromas of sweet chai spices, confit of dark fruits and hints of orange peel lead to a sumptuous palate, where the nutty, aged flavors engage with the fresh, fruity bright tones to create one beautiful Port. This is a spectacular value and not to be missed. Ferreira's Ports are some of the most impressive that we have tasted this season. Named by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of the top producers of 2012, this historic house, which also produces the world reknowned , ageworthy, and pricey "Barca Velha" reds, Ferreira is one of the great ambassadors of Port and Portuguese wines.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
Sub-Region:

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) 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.
