A good Port

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced Port for the holidays. I recently sampled an excellent bottle ($$$$) out of my price range, hope I'm not too spoiled with the good stuff now, but would like to buy one for around a double sawbuck.

As always, thank folks!
Cheers!

I'm here!

St. Francis makes a great port, as does a winery called Trentadue (both Sonoma County wineries). Meyers family port is another (same family that makes Silver Oak) and I stumbled across another one last week during a winery open house called Loxton. I know the Loxton is $28 a bottle and I think the rest all run around the mid-$20's. Let me know if you can't find any of those in your area.

With all due respect to California wines, port comes from Portugal. Some of the good names are Dow, Warre, Fonseca, Fladgate, Cockburn (say "Coburn"), and Sandeman. Ruby is entry level, Tawny is aged a little longer, and after that you're out of your price range. I think under twenty bucks, it's gonna be sicky-sweet, with the consistency of Robitussin. But there are some nice non-vintage wines around $25. Cockburn and Dow are two that I've had in the last year or so. Slainté.

KWV Tawny, from South Africa, abt $20. For the money I don't mind that it didn't come down the Douro.
