Port

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) below 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.

2016 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "OMG. This is really the most amazing young Taylor's I have ever tasted. Full-bodied and lightly sweet with super power and intensity. So racy and focused.

Its tannins and great fruit are finely integrated and are rich with potential. Black fruits, berries and a juicy aftertaste add freshness to the wine. Drink from 2028. *Cellar Sele ...Read More »

Quinta do Noval Black Port

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The NV Black cuvée comes half from estate vineyards (the rest is sourced from the Cima Corgo region in the Douro Valley) and is aged two years in larger oak and stainless-steel vats. At 20 bucks, it’s a terrific, forward, sexy Port offering lots of currants, raisins, candied olives, and dried herb aromas and flavors. It’s worth buying." (3/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'Black' is a new blend produced from classic varieties that do not make it into the Quinta do Noval vintage. There are ripe blackberries, tar, smoke and orange liqueur on the nose that takes time to open. The palat ...Read More »

Ramos Pinto "Quinta de Ervamoira" 10 Year Old Tawny Port

92 points Wine & Spirits: "The brightness of this wine comes across in a glaze of sweetness, like the brûlée on the top of the crème. The fruit, grown at a vineyard in the arid Douro Superior, still carries a touch of schisty tannins, along with notes of fresh orange and green fig. This is sleek and elegant, a 10-year-old with energy, gracefully mellowing into the complex notes of older wines that last."

Taylor 20 Year Old Tawny Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A complex and satisfying Tawny, this sits on the cusp of maturity with freshness continuing to infuse its deepening flavors. That freshness arrives in bold scents of orange zest and juicy citrus flavors, while the maturity mellows those flavors into layers of Marcona almond, date and sweet oak-smoke notes. It finishes with a hint of schist in the tannins. For fruit and cheese at the end of the meal."

1992 Taylor Vintage Port

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Taylor's 1992 Vintage Port is unquestionably the greatest young port I have ever tasted. It represents the essence of what vintage port can achieve. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up fabulously intense aromas of minerals, cassis, blackberries, licorice, and spices, as well as extraordinary purity and penetration. Yet this is still an unformed and infantile wine. If Chateau Latour made a late-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, I suspect it might smell like this.

1967 Krohn's Vintage Port

Krohn's Vintage Ports come from a single harvest. Intense fruit, structure, color and flavor, these ports are bottled two years after the harvest and in many cases spend many years maturing in the bottle. In order to maintain richness and power they are neither fined nor filtered, therefore throwing a large amount of sediment as they mature. For this reason, they should be decanted before being served.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Taylor Fladgate's 1991 Quinta de Vargellas is the finest Vargellas I have tasted. The opaque purple color is followed by aromatics that are more closed than most 1991s. In the mouth, it is a wine of extraordinary richness and brilliantly delineated components. This exceptionally rich, backward port possesses layer upon layer of fruit, a thick, chewy, unctuous texture, firm structure and tannin, and a finish that lasts for more than a minute. It is an exquisite port that will age for 25-30 years. (RP)" (2/1995) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Starting to show bottle bouquet, with beautifu ...Read More »

1985 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The beautiful Quinta do Noval is undoubtedly the most famous port producer, largely because their 1931 and 1927 were to vintage port what the 1947 Cheval Blanc and 1945 Mouton-Rothschild were to the Bordeaux trade - divine, monumental wines of extraordinary depth of flavor. The 1985 is quite concentrated, seductive, and amazingly delicious. (RP)" (1/1989) Wine Spectator: "Very good, it should come together with time. Medium ruby-purple, with a plum nose, full-bodied, with concentrated plum flavors, full tannins and a long finish. (JS, Web Only—1989)" K&L Notes: Four stars from Michael ... Read More »

1992 Quinta do Infantado "Estate Bottled" Vintage Port

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There were only 1,000 cases produced of the 1992 Vintage Port, and they are not likely to languish on retailers' shelves. A saturated, black/purple color is followed by a huge, ripe, pure nose of jammy blackberry and cassis fruit that is vaguely reminiscent of such great 1990 Hermitages as Chapoutier's Le Pavillon, Jaboulet's La Chapelle, or Chave's red label Cuvee Cathelin. Awesome concentration, massive body, an unctuous texture oozing with fruit, glycerin, and extract, and a blockbuster finish all suggest this will be a monumental port. Drink it betwe ...Read More »

1995 Graham "Malvedos" Vintage Port

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Superripe, exotic aromas of cassis and woodsmoke. Incredibly sweet and viscous on the palate; very concentrated, deep and strong in extract. A fruit bomb of a single-quinta port. Extremely long and powerful. This can't stand comparison with the great '94 Graham, but on its own it's a compelling and more easily approachable young port. (ST)" (4/1998) Wine Spectator: "Plenty of plummy, grapey aromas and flavors in this young vintage Port. Medium- to full-bodied, with medium, fine tannins and a sweet fruit aftertaste. (JS)" (4/1998)

2016 Cockburn's Vintage Port (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "This shows fantastic graphite and dark-berry character with black-stone undertones and hints of dried roses. Full-bodied and very tight and precise. Good kick in the end. Love the polished tannins, which are totally folded into the wine. Reminds me of the 1947 Cockburn. Try in 2024." (5/2018) 96 points Decanter: "A Douro Superior blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca supported by Sousão and Alicante Bouschet. Relatively closed and restrained on the nose but with an underlying ripeness with intense dark cassis backed by powerful yet fine-grained tannins, big and broad on ...Read More »

2016 Dow's Vintage Port (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Decanter: "Based on Touriga Franca with Touriga Nacional and Sousão. Tight-knit, with firm, rapier-like tannins on the palate – a ramrod all the way through with the opulence and flesh of the fruit on the finish. Fine-grained with great purity and expression. Leaner and much more restrained in style than others: the drier style of Dow works really well in ripe years such as 2016 (as it did in 2011). Outstanding wine for the long term. (RM)" (5/2018) 96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and dried flowers plus hints of slate follow through to a full body, very fine tann ...Read More »
