Very cool to drink a Colheita port from 1900. Flown over from the UK the night before, so still undergoing some bottle shock. Could have stood for a few more days to settle any sediment. Cloudy but still pretty delicious. — 6 days ago

Honestly this was selected to pair with a chocolate tart but solo or with the tart it was amazing. Not your typical overly sweet or mediciney port. This was an elegant red wine with deep red flavors and amazing balance. Likely my favorite port of the past 10 years. Decanted 3 hours before we drank it. — 6 days ago
A few days late in posting the Wednesday Wine Committee wines. Standard format with 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.
@Delectable Wine : This is the Martin Estate Puerta Dorada Vineyard Cabernet Port. I didn’t see it in the database.
Fig, nutmeg, clove and rich mixed berry pie. Lots of similarities to port, but the finish never goes to the traditional graham cracker richness, and not as lengthy of a lingering finish. Lighter than expected, and definitely not super sweet. More similar to a heavily extracted cab with age. I guessed Napa Cab dessert wine. — 6 days ago
