Otima 10 Year Old Tawny Porto

Oak intermingles nicely w cherry sweetness. Red-orange color is perfect. Strong aromas delivered in richness. Thought I was a white wine person, but the balanced, sweet freshness of a port is becoming my new favorite indulgence — 2 hours ago

Collares Ramisco 2013

I cannot describe how excited I’ve been for this bottle.

From Portugal’s tiny Colares wine region, this is the famed Ramisco grape, grown in vines in the sands off the coast of Sintra. Back when phylloxera destroyed most of Europe’s grapevines, these survived as the parasite couldn’t make its way in the sands the grapevines grew in. The Portuguese crown then nationalized the wine- unique to Portugal- and used it in diplomacy as a form of soft power.

The wine starts with a roughness that smooths into a beautiful, medium bodied flavour of black cherry and blackberry. Think of a juicy California Pinot Noir that manages the punch of a Rioja.

A wine worthy of its great history.

Aged 20 Years Tawny Port Blend

browner colour, smells of burnt caramel, apricots, amber honey - very syrup-y. not as sweet as the other port. tastes like raisins, maple syrup-esque. tastes similar to the maple syrup taffy/lollipops. not as fruity as the other port. after chocolate the flavours are softened and honestly not as sweet — 3 days ago

Aged 10 Years Tawny Port Blend

This Port is very sweet, with potent notes of maple, chocolate, and maybe raisin. This is a rich dessert red, that is almost rust in color. This pairs really well with dark chocolate. — 3 days ago
