 Taylor Fladgate

40 Year Port

Made entirely from the grapes grown on Taylor’s own properties, Taylor’s is one of the few remaining houses which still produces a 40 Year Old Aged Tawny Port.Tiny quantities of this wine are made. Decades of evaporation and ageing in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense and complex nutty and spicy aromas and a dense and concentrated palate full of rich mellow flavour.  Portugal

 Teso La Monja

Romanico 2016

 Rich, ripe and oaky, this full-bodied wine has loads of sweet blackberry and black cherry flavors, with generous doses of oak spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, wood smoke and dark chocolate. It’s bold but complex and will be a lot of fun to drink with red meat.  Toro, Spain

 Chronic Cellars

Purple Paradise 2016

 Zinfandel-dominated blend, which tumbles out on the tongue with dark cherries, fresh, ripe strawberries, a double dip of chocolate and vanilla, and the cool grip of moto jacket (aka leather). Paradise awaits. Paso Robles, California  $14.99

Eunice X White Blend 2015

 A unique but quite successful blend of 75% Chardonnay, 14% Viognier, 8% Roussanne and 3% Marsanne, this bottling offers light pear cream, cantaloupe and daffodil on the pretty nose. The palate shows honeydew ripeness but with plenty of restraint thanks to lime zest and clean green fruits, wiping up with a tense texture on the finish.  Central Coast, California
