Fresh and vibrant, with good focus to the plum, dark currant and dark chocolate flavors. The balanced finish offers notes of berry and spice.

Very jammy aromas here, while the wine is ripe and full. It has a soft character, all plum and blackberry flavors, the tannins just showing at the end to balance.

One of the most familiar of Reserve Port brands, this is a fruity, soft wine, which seems to have aging potential as well as present drinking pleasure. The flavors are open, generous and easy, with just a touch of tannin to give it structure.

Standard, simple Port, with flavors of dates, blackberry jam and a hint of mint or straw. Good balance for a wine in this category.

Could use a little more complexity, but fresh and fruity, with lots of flavors. Medium sweetness.

Showing its youth with deep purplish colors. Harmonious, with bouquet and taste marrying nicely, showing the fire that Sandeman wanted to recreate. Also, there’s lots of grip, a meaty feel, with deep fruit throughout. For a port you can use everyday, and which will keep for a month or so, it’s a fabulous buy.

Has a jammy, spirity nose and sweet, jammy palate, with vanilla nuances.
