Do Vale da Mina 1994 Seixo de Ansiaes Late Bottled Vintage Porto ($19.99)
Do Vale da MinaDark garnet, slightly on the light side for a young Port, with plummy fruit and vinous alcoholic aromas. Plums and star anise, sweet black fruit and "grippy" acidity on the palate. A bit lightweight by the standard of vintage Port, but still a warming winter glass in the Port style. U.S. importer: Europvin USA, Emeryville, Calif. (Dec. 28, 2000)

FOOD MATCH: After-dinner sipping, fine with the traditional Stilton.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the Wine Lovers' Page name and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.

E-mail me your tasting notes, and I'll consider adding them to this page.
