A Fireplace Port - Quinta Das Carvalhas Late Bottled Vintage Port 2011 - 93 pts.

Updated: Jan 7


Douro D.O.P., Portugal



Windy March evenings are made for sitting by the fireplace with a glass of #Port and your favourite book. Rich and luscious, this Port was crafted by Portugal's oldest wine company, founded in 1759. It shows rich toffee aromas, mingled with ripe dark plums, raisins and raisinated fruit, along with caramel and chocolate flavours. Aged 4-6 years in oak. So smooth and velvety! (Think Rolo candy on steroids.) Pair with creamy blue cheeses like Gorgonzola or a dish of macadamia nuts. It makes a terrific gift for a Port lover. @realcompvelha
