- Maynard's Port Colheita 1950 Product #30547 (In Stock)
Sometimes called, “The Ladies’ Vintage,” 1950 gave fresh, elegant, and very pure wines and was a “declared” vintage for many Port houses and shippers. While there's certainly elegance here, there's also plenty of "umph" to the sweet and savory complexity of cured tobacco, orange peel, warm stone, fig, date, and dried plum aromas and flavors. Brisk on the finish, a wine to really savor.
- Maynard's Port Colheita 1934 Product #30549 (In Stock)
A limited treasure.
"The 1934 Colheita Port (Maynard's) is a blend of 25% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz, 15% Tinta Amarela, 10% Tinta Barroca and 30% of traditional grape varieties (Sousão, Bastardo, Rufete, Sousão, Tinta Francisca, among others); coming in at 154 grams per liter of residual sugar. It is one of many fine 1934s I've had. It's a happy trend. This powerhouse is initially all about its power and it has quite a lot. I always recommend drinking Tawnies a bit cool, but double underline that here. Concentrated and complex, it isn't just about preening in its power, though it adds some sweetness on the finish and becomes increasingly complex and flavorful as it calms down a bit. Overall, it's rather stunning. Since the 80th birthday celebrations are over, you may as well sit it down and knock it back. It's pretty fine."Wine Advocate 96 points
