Croft Vintage Port 2003, 0.375L
from Porto, Douro

"An opaque core with bright ruby rim. The nose just explodes from the glass: blackberry, bilberry, violets, morning dew and cassis all with superb delineation. The palate is full-bodied, magnificent and regal, with better definition and focus than the millennial port. Blackberry, blueberry, that sense of minerality coming through towards the finish, seamless with unnoticeable alcohol. Great finesse on the finish, this is Croft returning to past glories. Outstanding." 96 Points Neal Martin

Touriga Nacional / Touriga Francesa / Tempranillo / Tinta Barroca / Tinta Cão / Tinta Amarela from Porto, Douro

Fonseca Vinatge Port 2003, 0.375L
Touriga Nacional from Porto, Douro

"Saturated deep ruby. Brooding, reticent nose of cassis and kirsch; there's nothing cooked about this one! Then massive, sweet and superrich in the mouth; explodes with exotic ripeness. Intriguing note of graphite. This coats every nook and cranny of the palate and clings and builds on the back end in a way that no other wine of this vintage can match. Huge, sexy and wonderfully lush Fonseca, built for the long haul." 97 points Stephen Tanzer

Taylor 10 Year Old Tawny Port NV, 0.75L
from Porto, Douro

"It is my opinion that Taylor's tawny ports are the best of their type. When tasted against other tawnys, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length. The Ten Year Old Tawny is a personal favorite, as well as the best bargain among these ports." 93 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Port NV, 0.75L
from Oporto, Douro

". . .On first taste, this was simply Taylor: big, concentrated and serious. It was all that and a bag of chips, but over a couple of day it also demonstrated far more elegance. It seemed arguably better balanced than the 10 year old Tawny this issue. Simply filling the mouth on first taste, this shows fine complexity for its age and it does everything else rather brilliantly. Succulent and inviting, it finishes with waves of concentrated flavors. The fruit remains lifted and and it has a bright, transparent feel. It is hard to resist, often seeming like a bit of an overachiever. It's not the best tawny Taylor's submitted this issue, but it might be the best intersection of quality and price."

The Rare Wine Co. Madeira Historic Series Baltimore Rainwater Special Reserve NV, 0.75L
Verdelho / Tinta Negra Mole from Madeira, Madeira

"I had the pleasure to try the Baltimore Rainwater bottling while visiting with Ricardo Diogo Freitas at Vinhos Barbeito, as I had not yet tried it here in the states. To give you some idea of how serious both Mannie Berk and Ricardo Diogo Freitas take this series of wines, the Rainwater is made from a blend . . . ! The very complex nose offers up a blend of fresh apricot, a touch of Myer lemon, lovely soil tones, a bit of briny ocean breeze and a nice topnote of green olive. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very elegant, with a lovely core and excellent length and grip on the focused and very refined finish. Soft as rainwater, as the saying goes…."

The Rare Wine Co. Madeira Historic Series Boston Bual Special Reserve NV, 0.75L
Bual from Madeira, Madeira

"Light, bright amber. Deep aromas of cherry pit, candied orange, toffee and molasses, lifted by a note of dried rose. Chewy in texture, with dry-edged nut and burnt orange flavors, a touch of molasses sugar and good back-end grip. Quite sweet but the wine's acidity adds focus, nerve and finishing bite." 92 points Vinous

The Rare Wine Co. Madeira Historic Series Charleston Sercial Special Reserve NV, 0.75L
Sercial from Madeira, Madeira

"I really like the Rare Wine Company’s Charleston Sercial bottling, which is one of my favorites in their fine historic Madeira bottling series. This wine only has one percent residual sugar, which with Madeira’s inherent tangy acids, comes across as quite dry, but beautifully buffered. The bouquet is a first class blend of white cherries, oranges, a touch of nutskin, fresh nutmeg, smoky overtones and a lovely base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and beautifully transparent, with a superb core, racy acids and stunning tension and purity on the superbly focused and very long finish. This is really a terrific bottle!"  94 Points John GIlan, View From the Cellar

The Rare Wine Co. Madeira Historic Series New York Malmsey Special Reserve NV, 0.75L
Malvasia Bianca from Madeira, Madeira

"Medium amber. Powerfully scented bouquet combines cherry compote, cola, molasses, pipe tobacco and brown sugar. Lush and expansive in the mouth, offering sweet pit fruit and orange marmalade flavors and a deeper note of espresso. Clings tenaciously on the finish, which leaves notes of bitter cherry and candied flowers behind." 92 Points Vinous

The Rare Wine Co. Madeira Historic Series Savannah Verdelho Special Reserve NV, 0.75L
Verdelho from Madeira, Madeira

"Medium amber with a green rim. Aromas of burnt orange, tobacco, toffee and herbs, with a hint of potpourri adding an exotic component. Broader and deeper than the Charleston, offering sappy orange marmalade, chestnut honey and toffee flavors underscored by tangy acidity. Shows a sweet, nutty quality on the smoky, gently spicy finish. I like this wine's heft and thrust." 93 Points Vinous

d`Oliveiras Sercial 1969, 0.75L

"Creamy and lush, this glides across the palate with rich buttercream notes to the flavors of apricot tart, pear compote, dried mango and pineapple cake. The spicy finish is fresh and minerally, presenting a long tail of dried ginger." 94 Points Wine Spectator
