Tawny Plus 40 Anos
Cockburn's Quinta dos Canais Vintage Port - 2006

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Touriga Nacional
Touriga Franca

Nose: On the nose - intense aromas of blackberry fruit and hints of bitter dark chocolate.

Palate: On the palate - full bodied and medium sweet, with very fine pure berry fruit flavors leading to a long and complex finish.

Notes: Quinta Vintage Ports are made and bottled in the same way as ‘declared’ Vintage Ports, although normally they are ready to drink sooner than the latter: usually after 10 to 15 years. However, the best wines, such as those from Canais, have the potential to continue developing in bottle for decades more. There are just 350 cases of the Quinta dos Canais 2006 (made at Senhora da Rabeira) and unfortunately it will probably not be commercialized as they view it as an “experimental” port.

Quinta dos Canais Vintage Port
Dow's Vintage Port (1500ml) - 1977

Unit Volume: 1500ml

Cultivars:
Touriga Nacional
Touriga Francêsca
Tinta Barroca

Nose: The 1977 Dow had a huge nose of sweet plum and raspberry with hints of flowers.

Palate: Ripe and opulent on the palate, it had a touch of caramel, along with licorice and molasses, all tempered by ripe berry fruit. The flavors lingered, leaving a sweet aftertaste.

Notes: This is an extraordinary House that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977. Dow's Vintage Ports are drawn from the companies' finest vineyards; Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta de Senhora da Ribeira. Each property contributes to the Dow’s unique and distinctive style. The wine is aged for two to two and a half years in wood before being bottled, unfiltered.

Vintage Port (1500ml)
Dow's Vintage Port - 2000

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Tinta Roriz
Tinta Barocca
Tinta Francisca

Nose: A strikingly provocative aromatic display (flowers, licorice, blackberries, and cassis).

Palate: An open, sweet herbal style. Ripe and rounded with some spicy structure, and noticeably sweeter. This firmly-structured, classic, tightly-knit, restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant, it is a beautiful, classically structured port that will age gracefully.

Notes: Few Port vintages have raised as many expectations as 2000 and when the buyers tasted the wines earlier in 2014 their high expectations were met. The poor berry set in June led to yields being slashed by as much as 35-40% in the delimited vineyard area for Port. The harvest took place in perfect conditions and produced a small, compact crop of grapes that were packed with rich fruit and tannins. 2000 was a really good vintage in the Douro, and looks likely to be the best vintage since the 1994 Port. Yields were lower than in 1997, and this has resulted in good concentration in many of the wines.

Vintage Port
Dow's Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira Vintage Port - 2013

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Touriga Franca (40%)
Touriga Nacional (35%)
Sousão (15%)

Nose: Both nose and palate have pronounced violet and bergamot notes, with savoury undertones of rosemary, pepper, eucalypt and fresh ground coffee.

Palate: In the mouth, it is both broader and drier than the Vesuvio with velvety baked black cherry, cherry stone and a firm underpinning of tapering tannins (iron fist, velvet glove indeed). Long, layered, meaty and dense.

Notes: Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira is set in the remote, hot and dry Douro Superior and commands a magnificent north bank position, overlooking a broad sweep of the Douro, directly opposite another Symington family-owned vineyard: Quinta do Vesuvio. A blend of 40% Touriga Franca, 35% Touriga Nacional, 15% Sousão and 10% old vines. Eight pipes were produced, which represented 5% of total production. Produced from grapes harvested manually, which throughout the vintage lingered less than 40 minutes to get from the vine to the winery, this wine is composed of only 5% of the total production of Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira, which represent the top quality. Result of the combined fermentation in wine press of Sousão grape varieties, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, this is an extraordinary wine and stands out from other Vintage Ports produced earlier on Thursday, but continues to show fresh violet floral notes that so perfectly They express the essence of the terroir of this property. In the opinion of Manuel Rocha, one of the tasters 4th generation of evidence of Vila Nova de Gaia room, this is the best Single Quinta Vintage ever made in Senhora da Ribeira, even rivaling the Vintage 1998 Vintage inaugural produced after the Symington family has regained the fifth that year.

Oloroso Añada
Emilio Lustau Tintilla de Rota - Nv

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Tintilla de Rota (100%)

Nose: Lots of spice and dark fruits on the nose.

Palate: Sweet sherry with velvety tannins and a soft, well-balanced taste with a long finish.

Notes: Tintilla de Rota is the name of a red grape grown in the sandy soils around the town of Rota. While this grape can trace its origins to the 16th century, it largely disappeared in the 1950s when the vines were uprooted in favor of an American military base. The grapes are sunned for two-three weeks and then placed in tubs and covered with esparto mats to prevent contact with the air. These are then left for about a month and periodically stirred before being pressed. Fermentation begins before pressing takes place. The resulting grape must is fortified to 17% alcohol and then aged in casks. Lustau bought small quantities in the late 80s and early 90s, keeping some casks in their bodegas from which present stocks originate. As far as we know, no other bodega is marketing a similar wine.

Nose: Nicely smoky, with steeped green tea and toasted almond notes leading the way.

Palate: The bouquet followed through on the palate enhanced with notes of caramel, walnut, clove, dried orange and sandalwood flavors that all flow in unison through the focused finish.

Graham's 20 Year Old Tawny Port - Nv

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Touriga Nacional
Touriga Franca
Tinta Roriz

Nose: On the nose it shows an excellent bouquet with a characteristic nutty aroma and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel, exquisitely mellowed by careful ageing.

Palate: Rich, gently sweet and smooth on the palate, it is perfectly balanced, with a long and elegant finish.

Notes: Graham's was founded in 1820 in Portugal's Douro Valley, and sits among the country's elite Port houses. For their aged Tawny Port bottlings, Graham's sources grapes from the pure schist soils of vineyards in the hot, dry meso climate at the heart of the Douro Valley. The 20-year is a distinct step up from Graham's 10-year, with a signature nuttiness and powerful thrust of flavors highlighted by orange peel and spice. During their long maturing period in oak casks, Old Tawnies undergo subtle color changes. The deep red hue which characterizes Port’s purple infancy gradually gives way to a paler red. It then becomes amber - paler still - and eventually takes on a delicate brown, orange tinted color.
