Fine Ruby Port

Postby Belgian » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:23 pm

Bulas Fine Ruby Port / Porto

Very fine indeed, almost drinks like a good solid Portugal red but with added richness. By turns sweet, acidic and dry. Some warm-climate herbals & florals at back of palate, interesting intense red fruit, cherry. Some peppery spice. It is somewhat simple and friendly as a Ruby Port, hence the color and yet it is also solid from some barrel aging and blending (average of 3 years.) This might not last forever as a tipple in the fridge, it should hold for several days then start to oxidize a bit... but after that it will still be amazing for a beef saute.

I love these wines! So much range, value and quality in the fortified styles. They seem to be good with snacks like nuts and chocolate. The Burmester 10y Tawny Porto I opened months ago still tastes really decent, it's a more 'oxidated' style so I naturally expect it to live in the fridge a bit longer.
