Presidential Port Ships Decanter Bottle

NV Ferreira Porto White, SA VN De Gaia, Portugal

Malvasia Fina, Códega, Rabigato, Gouveio

Porto Ferreira White has an appealing yellow-straw hue and a fresh but intense aroma, with attractive floral and fruit tones. Soft and very well balanced in the mouth, it is a rich and full wine, with added complexity and nobility deriving from a careful ageing in wood.

NV Presidential Porto 10 year Tawny, C Da Silva, Oporto, Portugal

Lively aroma of Plum, Cherry and Vanilla. Rich, full caramel flavors enhanced by a long, lush buttery finish. Slightly sweet.

NV Presidential Porto 20 year Tawny, C Da Silva, Oporto, Portugal

Elegant and complex with intense nutty flavor married with butterscotch and oak. A wine of exceptional character with a nicely sweet finish

NV Offley Porto 30 year Tawny, Barao de Forrester, Portugal

Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta barroca and Tinta Cao
Amber in color with appealing herbal hues. Its bouquet is very intense and has great complexity, with notes of caramel, mocca, hazelnuts and tobacco, harmoniously fine-tuned along years of careful evolution in oak. In the mouth, it is a very well-balanced and unctuous wine that shows a delicate structure and a sublime finish. An exceptional wine, it is produced in only limited quantities and stands out as the ultimate symbol of Offley Old Tawnies.

2000 Ferreira Vintage Porto Wine (ruby), SA VN De Gaia, Portugal

An opaque purple color is followed by dense aromas of black fruits intertwined with earth, camphor, and licorice characteristics. This medium to full-bodied, lusciously-styled port possesses excellent purity, a layered mouthfeel, and a long finish. ~Parker. 89 points RP.
