2011 Churchill's Vintage Port

SKU #1148644 97 points Wine Spectator

 Offers intense aromas and flavors of violet, cherry and dark plum, showing an almost exotic velvety nature, with loads of cream and spice accents. Delivers notes of chocolate and vanilla extract on the explosive finish. Very alluring. Best from 2030 through 2060.  (11/ 2013)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Churchillís Vintage Port has a comparatively light, aniseed-tinged bouquet with orange blossom that wafts seductively from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannins and very well-judged acidity that lends this young Churchillís great precision. This is a very harmonious Vintage Port with a lovely touch of salted licorice towards the finish. Beautiful. 3,000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013.  (6/ 2013)

93 points James Suckling

 This is very floral and fruity with dark cherries and wild berries. Full body, lightly sweet with lots of fruit and a firm tannic backbone. Serious grip or finish to this young Port. This seems to be a remake of the outstanding 1994. 6,000 cases produced of this foot-trodden wine. Try in 2020.  (5/ 2013)

This wonderfully open-knit 2011 has aromas of blackberry jam and vanilla and is one of the cleanest young vintage ports I have ever tasted. This wine is bound to gain complexity over the decades, and will be a great asset to any cellar!
Drink from 2021 to 2041

Country:

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.
