SKU #1121687 95 points Wine Spectator

 *Top 100 Wines of 2012* Elegant, with a deep purple color and complex, refined flavors of dark currant, ginger, blackberry and dark plum. Boysenberry and licorice notes chime in as well, lingering on the suave and silky finish. Fruity and complex. Best from 2016 through 2034. 12,000 cases made  (7/ 2012)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 A big, bold, black vintage Port, already enticingly perfumed, packed with as much rich fruit as tannin. Itís in the sweet vintage Port arena, an immediately attractive wine, yet layered with enough structure to keep it maturing for many years. The final sense is all richness.  (4/ 2012)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Red and primary in its fruit, this is relatively light in body for a 2009. The wineís intensity builds as the tannins add schisty mineral weight, lasting on scents of pink peppercorn and black mushrooms. Itís approachable as a young Vintage, or could be cellared for a decade to take on more mature pleasures.  (12/ 2012)

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.
