    This Port-style dessert wine can’t be labeled “Port” because it wasn’t made in Portugal. But trust us: If you love “the real thing,” you’ll love this Oregon version, crafted by a vintner (John Quinones) who was educated by Portugal’s top Port-makers. Berry aromas – blackberry, boysenberry, black raspberry – jump from the glass, and the flavors match the aromas as the wine coats the mouth in preparation for a long and sweet (and not even slightly hot) finish. One of the top 10 “Ports” – from Portugal or otherwise – we’ve ever tasted. Wine Lines rating: 96 pts

    Wow – what a beauty! I served this to a group of friends last weekend, and it was a perfect ending to a lovely meal.
