      Winemaker Notes

      #1 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2019

      An almost opaque deep ruby color. An aroma of excellent complexity and intensity, with notes of black and red fruit, shrubby tones, spices and hints of balsamic that harmonize perfectly with additional notes of shale/slate. With great volume on the palate, this wine has opulent and firm tannins, a well-balanced acidity and further shrubby tones that invite a vigorous and layered finish.

      The elegant and complex profile of this wine makes it the perfect accompaniment to rich chocolatey desserts, red fruit tarts and intense cheeses.

      This is going to be a major, impressive wine. All the elements are there: ripe blackberry fruit, powerful acidity, dense tannins and spice. It has the structure to live on for decades. Drink from 2030.

      Wine Spectator
      Warm and lush in style, featuring blueberry and açaí berry reduction flavors that glide over melted licorice and melted chocolate notes, revealing a seductive fruitcake hint on the rich finish. The grip of the vintage hangs in the background, resulting in a showy, fruit-bomb style. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Sousão. Best from 2032 through 2050.
      RP 94
      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      The 2017 Vintage Port Quinta do Seixo is a blend of 42% Touriga Franca, 31% Touriga Nacional, 15% Old Vines and Tinta Roriz and Sousão for the rest. It comes in with 108 grams per liter of residual sugar. Sandeman may not have made a declaration in 2017, but this single quinta is pretty fine, better than or equal to many who did. Powerful, pointed and inky black, not to mention full of flavor, this is beautiful. The mid-palate is not particularly fleshy, and might be a bit lean, but everything else is super. Some aeration did not help it along much—it remained powerful and penetrating, rather closed. This is very fine, but it does need to demonstrate some ability to gain more expressive fruit in the cellar. It may yet be entitled to an uptick. Be prepared to cellar it a bit, though. This was only in bottle about six weeks when seen.

      Sandeman, Portugal

      The House of Sandeman was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a determined young Scotsman. From a modest start two hundred years ago as a wine merchant in the City of London, to today's impressive lodges in Oporto and bodegas in Jerez, and the world's best known brand of Port and Sherry, there has been a continuous commitment to quality. The growth of Sandeman Port and Sherries over two centuries has been based on a balance of tradition and innovation, respecting heritage but always seeking improvement. In 1980, Sandeman became part of Seagram; today, as the seventh generation of the family and Chairman of the old firm, George Sandeman continues the Sandeman commitment to the quality of Sandeman Ports and Sherries, and to the future.

      The home of Port—perhaps the most internationally acclaimed beverage—the Douro region of Portugal is one of the world’s oldest delimited wine regions, established in 1756. The vineyards of the Douro, set on the slopes surrounding the Douro River (known as the Duero in Spain), are incredibly steep, necessitating the use of terracing and thus, manual vineyard management as well as harvesting. The Douro's best sites, rare outcroppings of Cambrian schist, are reserved for vineyards that yield high quality Port.

      While more than 100 indigenous varieties are approved for wine production in the Douro, there are five primary grapes that make up most Port and the region's excellent, though less known, red table wines. Touriga Nacional is the finest of these, prized for its deep color, tannins and floral aromatics. Tinta Roriz (Spain's Tempranillo) adds bright acidity and red fruit flavors. Touriga Franca shows great persistence of fruit and Tinta Barroca helps round out the blend with its supple texture. Tinta Cão, a fine but low-yielding variety, is now rarely planted but still highly valued for its ability to produce excellent, complex wines.

      White wines, generally crisp, mineral-driven blends of Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio, Malvasia Fina and an assortment of other rare but local varieties, are produced in small quantities but worth noting.

      With hot summers and cool, wet winters, the Duoro has a maritime climate.

      Port is a sweet, fortified wine with numerous styles: Ruby, Tawny, Vintage, Late Bottled Vintage (LBV), White, Colheita, and a few unusual others. It is blended from from the most important red grapes of the Douro Valley, based primarily on Touriga Nacional with over 80 other varieties approved for use. Most Ports are best served slightly chilled at around 55-65°F.
