Dessert and Fortified

  1. Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage 2014

    Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage 2014

    All grapes are sourced from old vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro Valley, the classic heart of port production, and aged for four years in large old oak vats. Wonderful aromas of dark chocolate, wild strawberries, blackberries, earth, and forest floor are followed by a balanced and fresh palate, leading into a seductive fruit-driven finish. Learn More
  2. Chateau Les Justices Sauternes 2016

    Chateau Les Justices Sauternes 2016

    88% Sémillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle. Slightly unusually, this Sauternes is not aged in oak, instead spending 18 months in neutral vessels. There’s still a richness characteristic of Sauternes, with pronounced aromas of orange peel, dried apricots, marmalade, and white pepper, followed by a sweet, viscous palate balanced by vibrant acidity. RS is 100g/L. Learn More
  3. Jose Maria da Fonseca Moscatel Roxo de Setubal 1997

    Jose Maria da Fonseca Moscatel Roxo de Setubal 1997

    This isn’t something you taste every day: fortified purple Muscat from the historic peninsula of Setúbal outside Lisbon, dating back to the 1997 vintage. This is a rich, sweet, complex wine full of aromas of grapes, fig, prune, dates, toast, brown sugar, molasses, honey, clove, and nutmeg, with a long, involved, fresh finish. Drink with blue cheese or chocolate. Learn More
  4. Lustau San Emilio Pedro Ximenez NV

    Lustau San Emilio Pedro Ximenez NV

    Absolutely superb, classic, and irrestible Pedro Ximénez from one of sherry’s best and most reliable producers. Chock-full of aromas – brown sugar, molasses, dried flowers, clove, nutmeg, fig, prune, date, syrup, toffee, caramel, and fudge – all rich, deep, and neverending. Just the 417g/L of residual sugar!

  5. Yalumba Museum Muscat NV

    Yalumba Museum Muscat NV

    This is dessert in a glass, so sweet, rich, and divine. The heady aromas and deep color come from long exposure to heat and oxygen, resulting in a sweet wine like no other that’s full of aromas of fig, date, prune, raisins, dried flowers, sweet spices, toffee, brown sugar, treacle, and molasses. A decadent, irresitible indulgence, there’s a reason Australians call their sweet wines stickies. Learn More
  6. Lustau Emperatriz Eugenia VROS Oloroso

    Lustau Emperatriz Eugenia VROS Oloroso

    Named after the last French Empress to visit Jerez, this is a wonderful, mature, serious Oloroso. From a solera established in 1921, it’s an incredibly rich wine that’s balanced by a viscous mouthfeel, full of aromas of fig, date, prune, cloves, nutmeg, toffee, fudge, brown sugar, mahogany, and smoke. The small amount of residual sugar (9g/L) is offset by the richness of the aromas and a long, drying finish. Such a complex, involved sherry. Learn More
  7. Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2000

    Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2000

    $105.00 (NET)
    A hot September in 2000 led to a luscious and ripe vintage, and those qualities are still present here. This is a big, voluptuous port, still a baby over 18 years later, full of red, black, and dried fruit aromas, as well dried flowers and herbs, with a rich, spicy, vanilla, chocolate, full mouthfeel. There's a lot of life left in this yet, with the sweetness, tannins, and acidity perfectly balanced. Learn More
  8. Cossart-Gordon 10-year-old Bual 500ml

    Cossart-Gordon 10-year-old Bual 500ml

    One of the oldest names in the Madeira book is always a go to. The grape/style is Bual (the same as Sémillon), which produces wines with rich sweetness and searing acidity. This 10-year-old is pale brown, with intense, concentrated aromas of molasses, brown sugar, dried fruits, toffee, baking spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fruit cake, a lush luxuriousness balanced by such refreshingly high acidity.

  9. Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2001

    Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2001

    $75.00 (NET)
    From the winery: “Touriga Nacional’s tiny yields brought great concentration to the wine, while Touriga Franca, due to good weather during the harvest, achieved perfect ripening, created wines of great elegance. Tinta Barroca was very ripe at the time of picking, with a higher than average baumé, producing wines of excellent structure and ageing potential. The old plantings of Roriz had lower than normal yields, giving wines with a typical concentration of berry fruit aromas.” Learn More
  10. Oremus 5 Puttonyos Tokaji 2008

    Oremus 5 Puttonyos Tokaji 2008

    Sweet wine doesn’t get much more sensational than this. It’s 5 puttonyos, for a rich, luscious style. The sweetness is lifted by high acidity and a wonderfully vibrant, complex nose of honeysuckle, jasmine, acacia, honey, dried apricots, tropical fruits, and smoke. Almost too good to drink, the texture clings to the palate for a neverending finish. Extraordinary. Learn More
