K&L Notes

It's a fine time to discover the joys of vintage port, like this 50-year-old Croft from a great year, and at a great price considering all its years spent in the cellar. Wine critic Jancis Robinson recently explained why, in JancisRobinson.com: "This is a luxurious but broad recommendation. Good quality port is one of the longest-living wines we can buy. If you're a fan of vintage port it really does make sense to age it for decades if you can - or at least to hunt down trustworthy sources of seriously senior examples. There was a time a few years ago when the likes of Oxbridge colleges and London gentlemen's clubs were selling off their port stocks as though they had some terrible contagious disease, so I wish you well in tracking down some of these bottles....Vintage port from the 1960s is now at its delicious peak, preferably from the vintage celebrating its half century, 1963, but neither the rather more delicate 1966s nor 1960s are to be sniffed at." (12/2013) "A beautiful Port from a legendary vintage. Tannins have melded into the wine and the sweet dried red fruit notes and tea leaf notes are gorgeous. Long finish. Tasted in: Hong Kong, China." (Jeannie Cho Lee, 7/2014)
