Vintage Port

Aligote Winery


Light amber in color with a wide brick/ yellow rim.

Strong sweet nose of Indian spices, coffee, mocha, tobacco, earth, honey, alcohol, caramel, vanilla, caramel, oak and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Sweet on the palate with caramel, chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, spices, earth, light vegetables, mocha, peppercorn, earth, wood, vanilla, cloves, tobacco and espresso.

Long finish with tangy tangerine.

This Israeli port is just wonderful. Good by itself as a dessert. Well balanced and soft.

Although this is a non vintage, I'm pretty sure this has spent many years in neutral Oak barrels. Very interesting and complex. Loved it.

Paired very nicely with vanilla ice cream.

Thank you David and Elvira for sharing this delicious wine with me.

Is the name "port" not protected?

You might be right, Anthony. I'm not sure about that


Vintage Port Blend 1994


1994, well stored. Probably slightly past peak. Prunes, sour brandy note, a nutty quality too. Sweet on palate though. Classy port, now with slightly less punch than it likely once had. Pleasure to drink it, especially decanted and given 30 minutes. In Maine; Ed's last significant bottle. — 5 days ago

Vintage Porto 1997

Great finish to our dinner and enjoyed with our pots de creme dessert. Ripe blackberries, chocolate and coffee flavors with a very appealing level of sweetness — 12 days ago

Royal Oporto (Real Companhia Velha)

Late Bottle Vintage Port Blend 2011

This shows even more promise of the 2011 vintage and is very youthful.
Opened for 4 hrs, just opened, not decanted.
Raisins, figs, and a slight jammy fruitiness aromas. Plums, blackberries, chocolate, toffee, and a hint of butterscotch.
Hard to beat for $20

Guimarens Vintage Porto Port Blend 2015

Founded in 1822 and still managed by successive generations of the Guimaraens family. This is something special and should be set down for many years. I opened this bottle early to celebrate my Mom’s 86th birthday, which was a very special occasion. Dark purple with complex aromas of berry & currants with notes of dry herbs. On the palate lots of rich dark berry flavors, with cedar, pepper and mineral at the core. Dense tannins, lingering ending with a statement. Very nice! — 18 days ago

Master Blend Finest Reserve Port 2012

I won't beat poetically around the bush. This vintage Port (2012) is nothing short of astounding. It's got the savory nose one expects on a tawny, but bigger, blacker, more brutish. A heavy whiff of smoke never goes away, and the earthy aromatics stay right behind. The palate lets the fruit shine through, sweet and sultry, with an amazing level of acidity and oh-so-firm tannins. It's a great sip, but I'm saving the last glass to have with a steak. — 9 days ago

Hedy’s dessert-Chocolate Soufflé with Cream. Paired with the 2012 Fronseca Guimararens Vintage Port. Yum!

Certainly early on the Port but, the only 375ml I could find in my cabinets before dinner.

Another Wednesday Wine Committee for the books, this one in honor of a former WWC member, with the wines donates from his cellar by his family. A wonderful tribute. Wines tasted blind as usual.

Just incredible. I guessed early ‘70s vintage port. So much life ahead. Baked blackberry pie, old graham cracker & cherry liqueur with a finish that hardly ends. Fantastic!
