Maynard's Port Fine White NV Product #31567 (In Stock)
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 2016 Product #32271 (In Stock)

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!

Quinta De La Rosa Lote 601 Ruby Reserve NV (500ml) Product #32682 (In Stock)
Quinta De La Rosa Lote 601 Ruby Reserve NV (500ml) Quinta De La Rosa Lote 601 Ruby Reserve NV (500ml)

What happens with an old Port house decides that instead of making a harsh, alcoholic, sticky-sweet, Ruby Port to be drunk by people who've already drunk too much - why not make a really great wine?  That's what's happening here at an estate that uses grapes that really ought to be in 20 Year Tawny or Vintage Port to create simply the best Ruby we've ever tasted!

Using only A-rated, estate-owned, vineyards they create a Ruby that's complex, layered, nutty, and finishes dry and fresh.  There's superb complexity to the nutty raspberry and Bing cherry fruit with layer upon layer of nutty caramel, spice and a gloriously dry, lightly tannic, finish.  It's the kind of wine you come back to again and again and will be especially delicious cool. Keeps nicely for a week or so on the counter and for a month-plus in the fridge.  Do not miss this!

Quinta De La Rosa Tawny NV (500ml) Product #32683 (In Stock)
Quinta De La Rosa Tawny NV (500ml) Quinta De La Rosa Tawny NV (500ml)

Astonishing quality for the money here in a Tawny Port made from grapes most growers would use for Vintage wines.  Port vineyards are graded from F (barely acceptable) to A (best of the best), and most straight Tawny Port comes from C, D and F-rated sites.  Quinta de la Rosa only owns A-rated vineyards and only makes wine from the grapes they grow.  Which is why this bold Tawny is so dark in color and richly delicious to taste.

It's a blend of wines aged three to four years in 500 liter Port "pipes" and blended each year for consistent style.  Dark tawny red in color, it pumps out intense aromas and flavors of dark fruit, rich honey, molasses and toasted nuts.  Rich and sweet in the middle, a bit of burnt orange peel comes up on the finish to provide balance and bite.  Lasts a week or so on the counter and several months in the fridge after opening.  What a treat!

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!

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.

Maynard's Port Tawny 20 Year Product #30550 (In Stock)
Maynard's Port Tawny 20 Year Maynard's Port Tawny 20 Year

A great example of what is perhaps the most classic style of “wood aged” or “Tawny” Port.  Winemaker Alvaro van Zeller, formerly winemaker at Quinta do Noval, blends this from Port lots that have aged in barrel about 20 years on average.  Plenty of richness and depth here but also a lively note of burnt orange peel and even a touch of fresh red berry.  A delicious value!

"Maynard’s is a brand from Alvaro van Zeller of Barão de Vilar. This 20-year-old is lush in its sweetness, with candied orange peel scents and ripe strawberry flavors that evaporate into a warm finish, lasting on scents of glazed chestnuts. A simple and delicious Tawny."Wine & Spirits 90 points

"The 20 Years Old Tawny Port (Maynard's) comes in at 109 grams per liter of residual sugar. A nice step up on the 10 Year Old Maynard's, also reviewed, this adds some weight, but more importantly, concentration of flavor--those old, classic Tawny nuances. Very pleasing, yet easy to drink, this is a charming 20 that should be available at a nice price."Wine Advocate 90 points

Eden Honeycrisp Ice Cider 375ml Eden Honeycrisp Ice Cider 375ml

Like ice wine? Strong cider? Honeycrisp apples?  All three come together in this deliciously sweet and spicy ice cider from New Hampshire.  It takes about 8 apples to make one 375ml bottle of this nectar, and every sip is loaded with sweet and tangy apple and pie spice complexity.  Juicy and long, it's a great match for apple pice and cheddar, pumpkin pie, or just a cool afternoon.

Dow's 10 Year Tawny Port Product #7247 (In Stock)
Dow's 10 Year Tawny Port Dow's 10 Year Tawny Port

Dow’s winemakers pick lots every vintage to go into the Tawny Port program.  The finished Port goes into large barrels and ages slowly, gradually acquiring a nutty, caramel, character and gaining an orangey/tawny color.  Dow’s 10-Year Tawny is made from a blend of these ports that are average approximately 10 years of age - although the “10-Year” designation indicates style more than actual wine age.  Dow’s 10-Year Tawny is a classic - orange peel, caramel, honey, nuts, and dried fig flavors swirl around a hint of red berry fruit.  Once again, the classic Dow dry finish keeps the wine refreshing.

Musella Recioto 2011 (375ml) Product #32081 (In Stock)
Musella Recioto 2011  (375ml) Musella Recioto 2011  (375ml)

Recioto is Amarone left sweet - in this case, gloriously, richly, deeply, sweet but remarkably fragrant and fresh, too.  Musella only makes Recioto in great vintages, using the very best grapes of the harvest dried on straw mats for 150 days.  The aromas and flavors here call to mind dried cranberry, raspberry and raisin with a bunch of wild herb (thyme? Rosemary?) and then sweet black cherry and raspberry on the finish. A burst of red berry acid cleans up the finish and pulls you back for more.  A blend of  Corvina 50% Corvinone 10%, Rondinella 10%, Croatina 15%, Oseleta 15%  fermented in open top oak fermenters and then aged 2 years in neutral barrel.

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

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.

Paul Marie & Fils Pineau Des Charentes Blanc Jep NV Paul Marie & Fils Pineau Des Charentes Blanc Jep NV

Just imagine taking the richest, most mouthcoating, just-pressed wine grape juice and then adding enough high-end VSOP Cognac to it to bring the alcohol up to around 17%.  Then put the blend into Cognac barrels and age it for 4 years more.  What you get is something utterly delicious, sweet and toasty with a just-right Cognac bite at the end. In Cognac they serve Pineau Des Charentes cool or cold as an aperitif or digestif, and we like it that way, too.  Keeps 3 months or so in the 'fridge.

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

Barbeito Madeira Baltimore Rainwater Nv Product #29046 (In Stock)
Barbeito Madeira Baltimore Rainwater Nv Barbeito Madeira Baltimore Rainwater Nv

"The non-vintage RWC Baltimore Rainwater (bottled January 2012) was designed to reintroduce Rainwater as a prestige style rather than the cheaper, paler versions of years gone by. Its template was a Rainwater that Mannie Berk tasted from the 1820s. It has a light lanolin, melted candle wax, dried fig and orange blossom-scented bouquet that expands nicely with aeration. The palate is crisp and light on the entry, with a vibrant citric thread that combines succinctly with bitter orange and mandarin notes. It is laced with a touch of toffee towards the elegant finish. This is delicate, understated and delicious."Wine Advocate 89 points

Dow Quinta De Senhora Da Ribeira Port Vintage 2015 Product #32409 (In Stock)
Dow Quinta De Senhora Da Ribeira Port Vintage 2015 Dow Quinta De Senhora Da Ribeira Port Vintage 2015

In "declared" vintages, Dow's makes it's vintage ports from fruit grown across it's Port holdings, but two great vineyards - Bomfin and Senhora da Ribeira - always comprise the wine's core.  In great years when no Vintage is declared, you get the chance to taste vintage Ports made just from these sites - in this case, the "single quinta" Port of Senhora da Ribeira.

Like most Port houses, Dow's came within a whisker of declaring 2015, deciding to hold off only when the massive quality of 2016 became apparent (Port houses generally declare only 3-4 vintages per decade and almost never two in a row).  You'll certainly taste why 2015 was so compelling here in this wine from the remote, hot, Douro Superior.  Delicious now and with 40+ years of life to come.

"The 2015 Quinta de Senhora da Ribeira, the Douro Superior quinta, is a blend of Touriga Franca 55%, Touriga Nacional 35% and Sousão 10%. It comes in at 98 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is a relatively big boy on first taste, showing good structure and a mouth-coating demeanor. The delicious flavors, laced with cherry-chocolate and some mint, make it enticing, not just well structured. This is a lovely single-quinta that should age pretty well and still be approachable young. 700 cases produced."Wine Advocate 93 points

"Rich and fruity, this wine is packed with intense black-currant flavors. It is perfumed, ripe with a good tannic background. The density of the wine and the firm structure point to a long aging process. Drink this beautifully structured wine from 2026."Wine Enthusiast 93 points
