A handful of traditional Portuguese varieties make up the divine fruit that develops through into this well-priced, highly drinkable and very approachable red.?This wine?brims with blackberry and cherry fruit, is knitted together frmly, but carries none of the over-powering oak or tannin that douro wines once wore as their badge.The wine is perfect to drink with many different types of meals as it has a good equilibrium in tannins and acidity.

It is a blend of classic white Port grape varieties, predominantly Malvasia Fina with smaller proportions of Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Arinto, grown on the cooler, higher vineyards of the Douro Valley. To achieve its crisp dry finish, the wine is allowed to ferment for longer than other styles of Port before it is fortified. Ageing in small oak vats gives Siroco its smoothness as well as its attractive ripe fruit flavours and delicate nuttiness.

Dow’s LBV is full-bodied, rich but perfectly balanced with soft peppery tannins and with a fine acidity that ensure perfect balance on the palate. The classic Dow’s dry finish is always present in the house’s LBV; it is one of the finest LBV Ports available.

Some of the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard, the rest from A-rated vineyards at the heart of the Douro valley. A part of the grapes is trodden by foot in "lagares," traditional stone vats from the Quinta. Another is crushed mechanically in steel vats. It is matured for 2 years in oak casks and steel vats to preserve the wine’s freshness.

Six Grapes closely resembles Graham's Vintage Port style: full-bodied, with rich opulent black fruit on the palate and fragrant brambly aromas. We think of it as the "everyday Port for the Vintage Port drinker." Six Grapes is bottled relatively young (between 3 and 4 years) in order to retain the freshness and vigour comparable to a young Vintage Port.

Wine Spectator #37 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2013, 91 Points"There's plenty of power behind the cherry and crushed red plum flavors, joined by crisp, spicy notes. Hints of citrus peel impart extra zest, finishing with pure, powerful accents of pepper and slate."
Taylor's LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. Powerful dark cherry and black fruit aromas. The floral and herbal notes that come through on the nose add lovely nuances to the bouquet .The palate shows great intense fruit flavours and fantastic depth and complexity. The wine is harmonious, well crafted, authoratative.

Wine & Spirits 95 points: Passagem 2007 wine is a full bodied, seductive wine with great balance and freshness often hard to achieve in wines from the hotter Douro Superior. Like all of Jorge's Wines, it has good equilibrium and definition. Very aromatic with black fruit flavours, rounded tannins and good complexity, the wine lingers on the palate. Undoubtedly the best wine we have made from this new project, it is showing very well now and has a good potential for ageing.

Wine Spectator #13 Top 100 Wines of 2013 97 Points Effusively juicy, rich and concentrated, showing plenty of snap to the crisp and well-spiced flavors of wild berry, dark currant and plum tart. Orange-infused chocolate notes linger on the exotic, mocha-filled finish. Best from 2020 through 2045Beautiful aromas of violets and blueberries with hints of blue slate. Full body, medium sweet with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A leafy, stemmy, nutty undertone to this with hints of shaved milk chocolate. Very refined and beautiful. 5,000 cases produced of this foot-trodden wine. Try in 2021. James Suckling 95 Points92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2011 Croft is initially taciturn on the nose, even after allowing it 20 minutes in my glass. A light swirling immediately awakens the aromatics to offer blackberry, Seville orange marmalade, blueberries and dried fig – complex and quite compelling. There is real mineralité within this bouquet that, returning after 30 minutes, offers alluring ocean spray scents rolling in off the ocean. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety-smooth opening that belies the fine, structured tannins underneath. It clams up a little towards the finish, shuts the lid tight and consequently there is the sensation of less persistency here compared to the Taylor’s or Fonseca. But Croft has a knack of filling out with bottle age and becomes both gentle and generous with the passing years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92-95 Points

Wine Spectator #87 Top 100 Wines of 2013, 93 Points A complex and full-bore tawny, with deep, intense flavors of orange cream, glazed apricot, baked peach and roasted pineapple that are balanced by concentrated chocolate and toffee notes. The bright finish is filled with spice and supported by fresh acidity.Amber, golden tawny. Excellent bouquet with a characteristic "nutty" character and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel, exquisitely mellowed by careful ageing. Rich, softly sweet and smooth. Perfectly balanced, with a long and elegant finish. Pairs extremely well with nuts, dried fruits and fruitcake but also with vanilla ice cream or crème brulee.
