2007 Barros Vintage Port (Previously $60)

SKU #1093288 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 On the dry side, firm and taut, with black currant tannins and a dense structure. This is a powerful, intense wine, cut through with acidity, finishing dry.  (12/ 2009)

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The purple/black 2007 Barros exhibits a lovely perfume of black currant, fresh herbs (sage and rosemary), Asian spices, and floral notes. This leads to an elegantly styled, silky Port with good concentration but only average volume. This pretty effort can be enjoyed relatively early but should continue to drink well through 2027.  (2/ 2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Full, bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, licorice, violet and nutty oak. Juicy, spicy and high-pitched, with moderately dense fla vors of black fruits, spices and violet nicely framed by firm, integrated acidity. A nicely delineated, pure midweight whose firm acid/tannin edge calls for at least seven or eight years of cellaring. A good showing today, though.  (1/ 2010)

Wine Spectator

 (Barrel Tasting) Stemmy and very fruity, almost jammy, with lots of raspberry. Full-bodied and very sweet, with round tannins and a clean, fruity finish. A little short, but clean and attractive. (Web-2009)

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 D„o 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.
