2000 Presidential Vintage Port
  • 2000 Presidential Porto Vintage - Portugal, Douro, Porto (12/26/2010)
    Double decanted from magnum several hours before serving. Medium purple in color with no browning. Raisins and plums on the palate with a bit of alcoholic heat and only moderate sweetness. 24 hours later the heat has dissipated, leaving the moderate sweetness to show on its own. Not at all a complex wine, really pretty ordinary. It's a serviceable port that can be drunk now and for the next 10 years while waiting for the better wines in your cellar to come around. A wine to be purchased inexpensively only. (88 pts.)
