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 Twenty Years Old Tawny Porto

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#29858

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2016
    Broad, rich and elegant, with creamy, supple flavors of butterscotch, toasted coconut and hazelnut. The luscious finish is loaded with spice and cocoa details. Seductive. Drink now. 4,000 cases imported.
    WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2008
    An elegant tawny, perfumed with soft tannins and a good edge of wood acidity and spirit. The wine is dry, densely flavored, tasting mature, showing a good balance between young sweetness and age, with everything well integrated.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Dec 2018
    The NV 20 Years Old Tawny Porto is a typical Douro blend sourced from juice ranging from 15 to 30 years old. It was bottled in September 2018 with a Vinolok cork and 115 grams per liter of residual sugar. This adds a little power and notable complexity to the 10 Year this issue, but it seems a little understated in concentration and surprisingly mature. The brandy is a bit prominent, but that improves. Its bright and gentle demeanor won’t leave you with a “wow” impression, but it sneaks up on you and it’s easy to like eventually. It showed better a few days later, at which point it was notably improved. Maybe some bottle shock plus travel shock before it was tasted rendered it a little closed at first. It finishes with classic flavors laced with caramel nuances. There were 60,000 bottles produced.
    WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2006
    Flavors of salted caramel and orange peel give this tawny complexity. It’s warm with more citrus fruit coming up in the end. For fresh roasted almonds.

  2. Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Porto

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#79692

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2014
    Rich, with a spicy nose, this offers flavors of fig, dried apricot, mango and ginger. Complex and elegant, delivering concentrated crème brûlée and tropical fruit notes that linger on the vibrant and buttery finish. Drink now.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 8/1/2006
    Although this famous name has produced quite a light 20-year-old, that lightness is more than made up for by the beautiful, smooth flavors, the taste of lemon jelly, dried apricots and peaches, and fine, fresh acidity.

  4. Sandeman Old Tawny Porto Aged 40 Years

    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.

  5. Sandeman Old Tawny Porto Aged 10 Years

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#71217

    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2016
    Rich and supple, offering creamy flavors of hazelnut, Christmas pudding and ripe cherry, with cocoa powder notes. Lush and spicy on the long, ripe finish. Drink now. 1,800 cases imported.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 2/1/2009
    This has a fine bite, offering its richness on the edge of a knife. Wood and fruit tannins are very evident, giving the concentration a dry, fresh core, over which dried fruit flavors pass. It has some age to it, as if there are older wines in the blend.
    WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
    Notes of raspberry liqueur and coffee cake make this a dessert in a glass. Its bright caramel-apple flavors last on spicy warmth, referencing both the alcohol and the wood in which the wine aged. It’s balanced and would work as well with a savory caramelized-onion dish as it would with an unsweetened plum tart.

  8. Fonseca Vintage Port

    2009 / 375 ml. | Item#67228

    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 2012
    This is gorgeously vibrant and grapey, with good cut to the luscious dark fruit and cedar flavors that are flanked by zesty acidity and tannins. A touch brooding midpalate, with a minerally rush and a finish of slate and iron. Best from 2016 through 2036.
    WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2012
    A classic Fonseca, rich and powerful, with just an extra edge of weight from the vintage. It has a dry character, a tannic edge that gives great promise, but the open-hearted fruit is all there. A wonderfully intense wine for aging.
    WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2011
    The voluptuous 2009 vintage seems to play right into Fonseca’s house style, creating a cool, concentrated wine. There’s a schisty grip of tannins and a fine cut of acidity to balance chewy blueberry jam flavors. Darker notes of roasted black cherries and brighter strawberry layer detail into the finish. A delicious young Porto, this will probably be at its peak 20 years from the vintage.

  10. Croft Vintage Port

    2016 / 375 ml. | Item#88789

    SP9797 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2018
    Very expressive, this unfurls with mouthwatering licorice snap, fruitcake, apple wood and violet notes, which are quickly followed by a wave of mouthfilling plum, blackberry and fig paste flavors. This is packed but well-defined, and the energy allows the fruit to ripple through the long finish. Built for the long haul, with distinctly dry cut at the end. Best from 2035 through 2055. 3,000 cases made.
    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, May 29, 2018
    Extremely perfumed with dark-berry and currant aromas. Hints of earth and spices. Full-bodied, round and medium sweet. Hints of resin. Opulent yet restrained. Shows ripe and beautiful fruit with clarity. Try in 2025.
    WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2018
    Juicy, luscious and with excellent ripe fruit, this is a balanced wine with a fine future. Its tannins are almost sweet to match the sweetness of the berry fruits. As it ages, this will be a lovely wine. Drink from 2027.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2018
    The 2016 Croft Vintage Port has a taut bouquet at first that demands a good 20 or 30 minutes to get into its stride. It eventually reveals scents of blackberry, bilberry, chimney soot, clove, and just a hint of scorched earth in the background. The palate is spicy and vivacious on the entry: black fruit, clove, white pepper and curry powder (almost like a Balti!) I love the personality imbued into this Croft, a Vintage Port that seems to be wearing its heart on its sleeve. Excellent. Production is 3,050 cases.
    RP92+92–94 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Jul 2018
    The 2016 Vintage Port is a field blend that was set to be bottled about a week after this tasting. It was the final blend, aged for 20 months in wood. It comes in with 104 grams of residual sugar. Tight, powerful and very intense, this is a big boy with the firmness you expect from fine Vintage Port, although the Fonseca is even more powerful. Showing good concentration and a fresh, lifted finish too, this is impressive at the outset. Initially, I was wowed by this. A few more tastes with more air made me think I’d like to see it prove some things in the cellar. It’s not hot, but it seems a bit more alcoholic than its Fonseca and Taylor siblings. Still, there’s a long way to go before making a final call. As noted, this is very tight, not nearly as approachable as many 2016s are in this relatively restrained year. It won’t sear your mouth with tannins — they are not TOO hard — but you are going to have to cellar it a while to allow it to acquire more complexity and more harmony. I’m not quite convinced this will ever become as attractive as Taylor and Fonseca in this vintage, though.

    A solid value in ruby Port, Sandeman’s bottling pairs dried fruits with leathery notes to offer more than simple, grapy fruit. Finishes with fresh, spicy notes. Imported by Pernod Ricard.
