Dessert Wine

Dow Colheita Tawny Port 1986, Douro, Portugal: Vintages Wine Panel: The word colheita means harvest in Portuguese, but for Port, the word takes on a different definition. The Ports used in the blend all come from a single vintage, in this case 1986, and then they are aged in old oak barrels for a minimum of 7 years. The resulting Port possesses a tawny color with aromas of nuts and dried fruit. My note: Stupendous! Guard against winter now. Rich tawny goodness. Pair with: stilton cheese. Drink: 2008-2010. 572776 20% S 750 mL  $58.95 Score: 95/100. October 25, 2008 Favorite Dessert Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
