2007 Vintage Port: a great vintage

Just written up the 2007 vintage Ports on the main part of the site here. If I wasn't paying for one of my children's education, I'd go big on this vintage, which I think is fantastic. I also think the 2003 vintage is equally excellent, after having retried a number of the wines.

My choices? I'd order a case of Noval, a case of Niepoort (backward but serious), a case of Taylors, a case of Graham, a case of Warre, and then some Romaniera and Silval to keep me going in the meantime. Vintage Port rocks.

How often do you drink the stuff (non-professionally!)

Alex, it's hard to differentiate my non-professional from my professional drinking
I really like to have a bottle of port on the go - a VP might last 4-5 nights - but I don't really drink it with food, or at the end of meals - it's more casual, reflective late night sipping

But maybe I should drink it more often?

Haven't tried the 2007, but agree that the 03 was pretty special from the tasting I've had of it. They do make brilliant Ports!

assic baby Vintage Port nose of blackberry, currant and a little bit of green lemon leaf. Full-bodied and medium sweet. There's a solid core of ripe fruit and powerful tannins, with grip. The real deal.
