- Quinta Dona Matilde Porto Colheita 2004 Product #27905 (In Stock)
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.
- Pol Roger Extra Cuvee De Reserve Brut Vintage 2004 Product #30247 (In Stock)
Winston Churchill drank a bottle a day and wouldn't get on a plane without at least a case aboard. Perhaps you shouldn't be quite so indulgent, but it's very, very, good.
"Ripe, mineral-accented orchard fruits and buttered toast on the deeply scented nose, with a sexy floral nuance in the background. On the palate, intense pear and tangerine flavors expand and gain spiciness with air. At once rich and lively, this Champagne finishes with excellent precision and lingering mineral and floral notes." Vinous (Reynolds) 93 points
"A crowd-pleaser, with overall harmony and elegance, this is hard to stop sipping, showing lively acidity and a fine, creamy mousse that carries flavors of black cherry and berry, pastry cream, honey and candied ginger. Presents a fresh, chalk-tinged finish. Drink now through 2027."Wine Spectator 93 points
