KOPKE Colheita 1941 Port

(Oporto, Portugal) $850

Yes, you can still buy this wine. And yes, it is majestic. Made during the first years of World War II, Kopke’s Colheita Port is older than just about everyone reading this. It is a wine of great passion and integrity. A wine that’s both frail and powerful at the same time. Like silk falling in folds, it ever-so-gently fills your mouth with a sublime richness. The aromas and flavors of very old wines like this have coalesced into something entirely new, and they wrap themselves around you with astonishing beauty. Founded in 1638, Kopke is the oldest Port wine house. Colheita (col-YATE-ah) Ports are tawny Ports from a single vintage year and are extremely rare. Astoundingly, Port producers often release their colheitas after the wines are fifty years old or more. A stunning end of the year wine, and a superb gift to yourself or someone you love.
