Late Bottled Vintage Port 2011

A delicious example of LBV Port - it has all the classic vintage port attributes - plummy licorice aromas and flavors, balanced seemed and acidity, chewy texture -- all this is in the LBV except with a little less intensity. I like the Dow style - it's less sweet than Grahams and a bit more herbal in character. This is a beautiful wine for the price — 2 years ago

Vintage Porto Port Blend 1977

Roots and flowers bouquet. Light body, high acid. Quite typical '77 style, and, although lacking the expansive finish of '77 Taylor or Dow, still satisfying. — 4 years ago

Alzero Veneto Cabernet 1997

Wow. Raisin, anise, licorice plum. Amazing structure from front to back. Seems like it nearing its end, but a delicious treat nonetheless. Drinking like a Dow port. — 8 months ago

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

La Tâche Pinot Noir 1990

Oenomaniacs don't have pearly gates, we have Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache 1990. Outrageously sexy, with a celestial perfume of asian spices and underbrush and dried cherry. Eternal finish that tattoos itself on your tongue and palate. Medium to full-bodied, with startling freshness and grip for a quarter-centurion. La Tache 1990 will enthrall for another 30 to 50 years.

Vintage Porto Port Blend 1994

Decanted 12 hours before serving. Very dark purple color, immense fruit and fair amount of spirit, less dry than other vintages of Dow, not Fonseca/Graham’s sweet, but just fantastic fruit with a tad more sweetness, immensely long finish, not ready to drink, hold 10-30 years, a WOW Porto!! — 9 months ago

Porto 1985

A good night for port. Feels as if it could snow, and we hardly ever get snow here. The Dow is sweet. But it doesn't have enough tannic grip to frame the sweetness. Typical '85 port. Not complaining; happy to be drinking it. — 4 years ago
