Port wine is a classic dessert wine, created by necessity in the 17th century to enable the export of wine from Portugal to England without spoiling (by adding grape neutral spirits (i.e. brandy) to wine). The resulting product is the richly-flavored, intense, often sweet after-dinner drink that we've come to love over the years.

Almost all Port wines can be divided into one of two major categories: tawny or ruby. Tawny Ports are aged in barrels, permitting some oxidation, and tend to have a nutty flavor. These can range from basic Tawny, aged Tawny (designated by number of years in the barrel, not by vintage), or Colheita (vintage Tawny). Ruby Ports are aged in the bottle, with no oxidation, and have predominantly berry flavors. Ruby Ports include basic Ruby, Special Reserve Ports (often labeled with a proprietary name), Late-Bottled Vintage and Vintage Port.

Port wine ratings are a good way to determine a brand preference for basic (non-vintage) Tawnies and Rubies, because these wines are very consistent for every production batch a winery releases. Vintage, Colheitas and Late-Bottle Vintage Port wine can vary from year to year, but are generally exceptional and have the ability to age long-term.

  1. Sandeman Old Tawny Porto Aged 30 Years

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#81422

    WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 1/1/2020
    This is a beautifully concentrated wine. Rich and dense, it offers dried fruits, spice and intensity. The wine’s spirit edge acts as a lift, bringing out acidity, honey, walnuts and a complex perfumed aftertaste. Drink now.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
    Pretty, with bergamot, date, fig and caramelized peach flavors gliding through, framed by a caramel note that lingers on the polished finish. This gains intensity as it opens in the glass. Lovely. Drink now. 780 cases made, 300 cases imported.

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#86503

    WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2008
    Dark raisin and dried apricot flavors manifest on this immensely dark, old goldhued wine. Enormous concentration, as with the initially, almost painful acidity that comes through the spirit. This is an old wine, no question, but not too old, one to be savored in sips with all the flavors working at high intensity.

  11. Quinta Vale D. Maria Vintage Porto

    2009 / 750 ml. | Item#69324

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2012
    Filled to the brim with sweet fruit flavors of blackberry, mineral and fig that tap into a deep well of molten chocolate notes. Finishes very spicy, showing forthright grip. Textbook power and brawn. Best from 2020 through 2040. 691 cases made.
    WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
    This is a big, saturated Port from a hot season, a widely declared vintage noted for concentrated wines. Vale D. Maria, southeast of Pinhão, above the Rio Torto, produced a meaty 2009, its deep purple color revealing black depths of fruit and tannins that combine in umami sweetness. Savory notes of mushrooms, walnut skins and floral spice show a wine at the cusp of drinkability, needing a few years in the cellar to open past its blackout power.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2012
    Saturated ruby. Sappy aromas of kirsch and licorice. Very sweet and concentrated, with a slightly high-toned quality but also solid framing acidity to the primary dark fruit flavors. Very rich and muscular but still youthfully monolithic. The long finish features fine tannins and well-integrated alcohol (the label says 21.5%!).

  14. Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve Porto

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#55400

    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2019
    The NV Six Grapes Reserve Port is a blend of typical grapes aged in used wood for up to three years. It comes in with 114 grams per liter of residual sugar and was bottled with a bar-top cork in August 2018. In the Symington lineup this issue, this iconic brand is the polar opposite of the Dow. In comparison, the Dow is rounder and bigger but also a bit flatter and with less well-defined fruit, while this is more lifted and fresher, with better focus and more intensity on the finish. It has a beautiful expression of fruit as well. I’ve seen it available on the street for a lot less than that “suggested” release price, so don’t hesitate to look around.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2011
    A dry wine, firmly tannic, although also with acidity and black currant fruit. Spices and licorice add interest, while the tannins finish this attractive wine.
    SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2010
    Lots of sweet dark plum and sweet cherry flavors dominate, with plenty of milk chocolate. Clean and balanced on the straightforward finish. Drink now. 30,000 cases made.

  15. Graham’s Tawny Porto Aged 20 Years

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#61031

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2013
    A complex and full-bore tawny, with deep, intense flavors of orange cream, glazed apricot, baked peach and roasted pineapple that are balanced by concentrated chocolate and toffee notes. The bright finish is filled with spice and supported by fresh acidity. Drink now. 25,000 cases made.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 8/1/2006
    This is a hugely dry, burnt style, very concentrated. The licorice and bitter coffee flavors are dense, layered and well balanced with the acidity. A serious wine that demands attention.
    WS8686 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2000
    Buttery, caramel flan flavors enrich this mature, toasty tawny. It finishes warm, with a silky custard softness rather than grip. Serve with a walnut or almond tart.
