I love this port... Give me a bottle of Jonesy with a juicy grilled steak & I'm in heaven!! I am very upset to find it SOLD OUT >:-(
I enjoyed this port, though I don't usually like sweeter wines- this one did not disappoint.
This is a unique Port. You have to have this in your cellar. Regardless of the cross section of wine drinkers at your party, serve this low cost port and you will appeal to everyone. I have 63 Vintages and this port and I get just as many positive responses from this because only a small percentage of my friends appreciate a fine port. That's fine. This one hits all the high points for your average attendee.
Raisin. Full of flavor.
I don't think you need to order a case, but do try this nice Port that is very affordable. The sophisticated wine drinker will have had better in his day, but to appeal to a larger less picky crowd this is a solid option in its class.
Closer to a Ruby but not as dominate
I rarely disagree with the Wine Advocates, but I am much more inclined to rate this port at 87 or 88 points than at the 93 points given by RP. Visually the brownish color was unappealing. The taste was a monotone of caramel. The finish was a lingering raw brown sugar. Overall, an unappealing port.
This is one of the best Ports I have had. It is smooth and has just the right amount of sweetness, and not too heavy. Great with a fine cigar.
light crispy fruity flavor very nice, twist cap makes it easy for anyone to open.
Incredibly smooth for a ten dollar port. I usually don't go past 15 year old ports because I enjoy some harshness. Those are at a different price point than this. This is great for what it is.
If you don't want a sweet dessert wine, do not buy this. If you do want a sweet desert wine, you can't beat this, especially at the price.
A 93...perhaps a bit to high Robert...but an appealing, everyday type drinker. I love a good port and for $10...a really nice deal.
Fabulous port - sweet raisins, choco caramel notes with a nice finish and good weight. Better than most $40 bottles I've had.
Well worth the money. A different flavor of Port. Not too sweet, light, a little fruity.
Very enjoyable port especially with Stilton, walnuts and pears.
Consider what Port would taste like if it came from frozen concentrate. With the understanding of "what do you. expect for a Port at this price ? " It may be over priced. Gave it one star because the system required it
Incredibly smooth--not a hint of alcohol "burn". Simply Dee-Lish!
This is a very nice inexpensive port. It isn't the best I've ever had, but it is the best I've had at the price point. I will definitely be buying this again.
a perfect dessert wine for those of us that want the sweetness but not too much like a german wine or most ports. Lots of body for after dinner wine. Taste like liquid raisins
we just happened to pick up this wine based on a recommendation from a local wine and spirits store. we loved it so much, we've suggested it to friends and relatives.
Nice and smooth; not too sweet. I added it to a pot of Lobster Bisque soup -- lovely! Will try in my Pecan Pork Chops recipe. Bet it's good on-the-rocks, too -- like Harvey's. Can't go wrong at this price...go for it! Cheers for the New Year...another chance for us to get it right!

Doesn't quite compare to some of the more expensive aged ports, but worth a try. If you'd like to spend a bit more cash I recommend Warres Optima 10 yr. old tawny.
