I opened this bottle last night, watching The Godfather, for the first time since 1999.
It’s Churchill Quinta de Gricha Vintage Port 1999, and it’s drinking perfectly now. Spicy, quite dense, rich and with a hint of mintiness. It still has ripe fruit and good structure, but there’s some earthy, spicy complexity too.
There’s something wonderfully rebellious about Port: it’s sweet, and high in alcohol. But it’s delicious.
