2012 Ferreira Late Bottled Vintage Port

SKU #1324350 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 The wine is dry, concentrated, very much in the house of this legendary brand. It has acidity as well as the rich dried fruits, with the tannins a force in the background. It is a style of LBV that could age well, with its structure and acidity. Drink now, certainly, but it will be an even better wine from 2020 or 2022. (RV)  (12/2017)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Fleshy and ripe in feel, with lots of cherry, dark plum and fig compote flavors mixed together, carried by a solid graphite edge and backed by a broad swath of ganache and melted black licorice on the finish. Drink now through 2023. (JM)  (2/2018)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Bright and herbal, this starts out with friskiness in its tart fruit, then tames it with some chocolate richness. The tannins are black and smoky, providing enough structure to stand up to Stilton.  (2/2018)

- 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.


- 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.
