Maynard's Port Fine White NV Maynard's Port Fine White NV

A classic white Port, made to enjoy with a splash of tonic and a squeeze of lime - or just on the rocks all by itself!  Bright flavors of lime zest, stone fruit, and a hint of toasted nut with a light sweetness and plenty of length to the generous, ripe, finish.  Fun stuff!

Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Product #28480 (In Stock)
Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV

An outstanding in real Madeira for sipping or use in rich sauces or soups.  The light tawny color and heady aromas and flavors of toasted nuts, dark caramel, and burnt orange peel come from barrel aging and exposure to high heat for 3+ months - the process that "Madeirizes" the wine and creates its distinctive tang.  Lightly sweet to balance the zingy acids.

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Product #30800 (In Stock)
Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015

This delicious frizzante wine is a rare version of red Malvasia, made with a touch of sweetness and a light, frothy, sparkle. As The Washington Post’s Dave McIntyre said about the 2011, “This delightful little frizzante red from Piedmont is a cousin to Brachetto d’Acqui, and equal to Brachetto in its affinity for chocolate."  As always, the lightly sweet red raspberry and strawberry fruit is a delight!

"Silky-tasting, with very fresh and vibrant flavors of dark plum, chocolate and spice. The lush finish is supple and refined. Drink now."Wine Spectator 89 points

Ramos Pinto Ruby Port Product #28028 (In Stock)
Ramos Pinto Ruby Port Ramos Pinto Ruby Port

A delicious and fun Ruby port made from younger vines of Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca and aged 3 years in big wooden wine vats called "balseiros". Fresh and fruit-filled with generous notes of crushed raspberry, blackberry, and sweet licorice and dark chocolate.  Very juicy and fresh, and perhaps too easy to drink by itself.  But, try it with Stilton, nuts, or chocolate cake - Yum!

Rozes Porto White Reserve NV Product #25066 (In Stock)
Rozes Porto White Reserve NV Rozes Porto White Reserve NV

First, yes - this is a full 750ml bottle!  It's also a fascinating take on white Port.  Because the white wine aged in wood for 8 years, this drinks like a fantastically vibrant, youthful, tawney Port.  Full of dried apricot and raisin fruit and lightly caramelized walnut and almond flavors, it's lightly sweet and super long on the palate.  Delicous!

Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml) Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml)

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids. Rock solid Sauternes aromas and flavors of apricot, toasted almond, white peach, and honey, a creamy texture, and refreshing ginger and lemon notes on the finish.  For lighter desserts or even with savory caper/lemon sauce!

Quinta Do Noval Late Bottled Vintage 2011 Product #31430 (In Stock)
Quinta Do Noval Late Bottled Vintage 2011 Quinta Do Noval Late Bottled Vintage 2011

Ready to drink to night or cellar for a decade.  Brilliant stuff from the great 2011 harvest.

"The 2011 Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage Port, a typical Douro blend, was bottled in 2016 with a long cork and 101 grams per liter of residual sugar after five years in barrel. This is brilliant. Sappy, intensely concentrated, remarkably complex and beautifully structured, this young LBV has plenty of room to grow in the cellar, too. It is young, unevolved and capable of development. The complexity that it has now, with a trace of herbs, rhubarb and generally classic Port flavors, is a hallmark, but that will increase and become more varied with age. The tannic pop will also calm a bit more, not that this is undrinkable now. This reeks of potential. Noval is one of my favorite unfiltered LBV producers and this is a fine moment for it. With a few years of bottle age, it might even seem better as it acquires more complexity."Wine Advocate 93 points

Poggio Alloro Vin Santo Del Chianti 375ml 2010 Poggio Alloro Vin Santo Del Chianti 375ml 2010

A traditional dessert wine style from just outside the walled city of San Gimignano, Tuscany.  Trebbiano, Malvasia, and San Colombano grapes are dried and then aged five years in small barrels (traditionally chestnut) to give it a distinctive nutty, resinous aroma and flavor. Great with the traditional accompaniment of biscotti.

Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez Montilla Moriles Product #17557 (In Stock)
Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez Montilla Moriles Alvear Solera 1927 Pedro Ximenez Montilla Moriles

Super rich, dense, and sticky, this Pedro Ximenez Sherry from a solera started in 1927 delivers wildly complex aromas and flavors. Try it with maple ice cream or savory cheese.

"The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer."Wine Advocate 96 points

Maydie Tannat Dessert Wine 2012 (500ml) Maydie Tannat Dessert Wine 2012 (500ml)

This sweet wine from Southwestern France is made with hand-picked Tannat grapes allowed to semi-dry on the vine. The wine is rich and dense, with ample black currant and black cherry fruit framed by notes of chocolate and spice cake.  Complex and medium sweet, this would be a great match with anything made with dark chocolate.

Intorcia "1980" Marsala Superiore Riserva NV (375ml) Product #30701 (In Stock)
Intorcia Intorcia

Founded in 1930, Intorrcia is in the heart of Sicily's Marsala region and makes outstanding sweet and dry examples of the area's most famous wine.  This wine, from a solera established in 1980, is in-between the two, offering toasted nut, caramel, and dried fig aromas and flavors before finishing crisp and dry.  You can certainly cook with it, but try it (with or without ice) with olives and salty nuts for a fine treat!

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Product #31238 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml

One bitterly cold morning in January 2014, Anton Bauer and his team got up before dawn and harvested the last Grüner Veltliner berries of the 2013 growing season.  The frozen berries were rushed to the winery and immediately pressed, releasing tiny amounts of super-sugar-laden juicy and leaving the still solid water behind.  The thick, viscous, juice went into tank where it slowly fermented until the yeast could do no more, bringing the wine to 12.5% alcohol and leaving a stunning amount of rich sweetness and bracing acidity behind.

Despite the 2014 harvest date, this is technically a 2013 vintage wine.  But whatever you call it, the wine is brilliant.  Rich and creamy with layers of apricot, peach and white fruit aromas and flavors, there's a touch of honey and caramel for depth and bracing, tangy, acidity for freshness.  Sits on your palate for minutes after each sip, this is a rare treat you won't want to miss.

Quinta Dona Matilde Port Vintage 2011 Product #27907 (In Stock)
Quinta Dona Matilde Port Vintage 2011 Quinta Dona Matilde Port Vintage 2011

The Barros family knows a thing or two about Vintage Port, with family founder Manoel Moreira de Barros starting the top-notch Barros estate in the early 1900s.  Quinta Dona Matilde was already highly respected when Barros acquired it in 1925, although it was equally famous for being one of the most difficult to farm vineyards in the Douro Valley.  Dona Matilde passed out of the family with the sale of the entire Barros group in 2006, but less than a year later Manoel Moreira’s grandson, Manuel Angelo Barros, was able to buy it back and return the Barros family to the Port and fine wine business.

Many of you have loved the family’s 2007 Vintage Port when we’ve offered it in the past, but importer Jonas Gustafsson and Filippe Barros agree with me that the 2011 is a substantial step up in quality and sophistication.  The wine opens with lovely aromas of dried blackcurrant and raisin with a touch of leafy tobacco, wet stone minerality, and vanilla spice.  The aromas carry through on the rich palate where nutty, spicy, undertones emerge and the sense of minerality gets stronger.  As you’d hope for in a young Vintage Port, there’s very nice grip to the firm tannins and plenty of juicy, refreshing, acids to keep everything fresh and focused. The chewy tannins don’t get in the way of the long finish where the minerality and spice notes really shine.  Try this now with walnuts and Stilton cheese or cellar it for as long as you’d like to.

Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Product #28360 (In Stock)
Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml)

A classic Tokaji; medium-sweet.

The 2007 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos is a blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu (the first and last forming the base wine.) The berries were added to both the fermenting must but mostly finished wine, depending on the level of botrytis, then aged in barrel for 30 months. It has a very pure and clean nose, perhaps one of the most Sauternes-like I have come across, with yellow plum and quince aromas. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with effervescent Satsuma, apricot and quince notes pricked with just the right amount of acidity (7.2 grams per liter, in case you were wondering.) This very feminine, balletic Tokaji – a little ingenue – is a perfect introduction to the delights of aszu wine. Drink now-2035+. Wine Advocate 91 points

"Spicy aromas lead to candied citrus and clove flavors in this elegant dessert white. Moderately sweet, with bright acidity and fine length. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points

A classic that pairs honeyed richness with vibrant acids.

"A bright, juicy, lively style, with mango, peach, yellow apple and green fig notes all rippling along, carried by alluring honeysuckle and white ginger notes. This is flattering at first glance but there's fine minerality stitching up the finish. Should unwind nicely in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2022."Wine Spectator 93 points

Ch Guiraud Sauternes 2008 375ml Ch Guiraud Sauternes 2008 375ml

Nicely mature and very rich with a long, long, finish.

"Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. It is clear that the aromatics on the 2008 are a little simpler and more straightforward than the 2007 with honeysuckle, jasmine and mango scents emerging with time. The palate is ripe and precise on the entry with well-integrated oak that is in sync with the lemon curd and apricot fruit. There is a lovely sweetness on the finish with a hint of spice lingering in the mouth. As I wrote last year – sublime."Wine Advocate 93 points

"A ripe, flashy style, with layers of creamed peach, Jonagold apple, candied citrus peel and dried apricot, all stitched with lovely acacia honey and floral notes. This has power and purity. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 92 points

Quinta Dona Matilde Porto Colheita 2004 Product #27905 (In Stock)
Quinta Dona Matilde Porto Colheita 2004 Quinta Dona Matilde Porto Colheita 2004

The Barros family made their name in the Deuro during the 20th Century before selling the brand and focusing their energies on dry wines at Quinta Dona Matilde.  But, Filippe Barros and family aren’t quite ready to give up Port just yet, and they’ve tapped their broad range of contacts to create this brilliant 9 year-old beauty.

A lovely amber color with shimmering gold and rose highlights.  Big, lush, aromas of caramelized nuts, toffee, orange peel, and dried fruits lead to deep flavors of more toffee, toasted pecan, blood orange, dried redcurrant, and more.  Although it’s richly textured and weighty, a beam of brilliant acidity runs through the wine, giving freshness and a dry, very lightly tannic, finish.  This will thrill any fan of 10 year Tawny Port, matching that style’s freshness and fruit character and adding on more subtlety and complexity.

Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Product #24683 (In Stock)
Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml

Usually my personal favorite of the line-up (although 2007 Fonseca is pretty impressive!), the 2009 Taylor Fladgate delivers the Bordeaux-like elegance and class it's known for. On the nose black fruit with notes of raspberry and plum and hints of graphite and cedar. The flavors stay black with currant and cherry appearing plus dark licorice root, apple skin, and more graphite. The deep flavors stay over top of the firm, grippy, mouth-coating tannins that keep everything focused and almost elegant (if such a big wine can be elegant). Love it.

"Going back and forth, the Taylor's 2009 has a lighter nose than the 2007 with precise dark cherry, Seville orange, fresh fig and a hint of scorched soil. The palate is full-bodied packed with ripe black cherries, fresh fig and white pepper; very harmonious and focused although I feel that the 2007 has a little more depth and persistency. Very pretty and very pure, this Taylor's may well put on weight with a couple of years in bottle and merit a higher mark."Wine Advocate 95 points
