TAYLOR FLADGATE “325th Anniversary” Limited Edition Reserve Tawny Port

(Oporto, Portugal) $35

Tasting wine in my office in Napa Valley, it’s nice to be reminded that some wineries were around way before California was. Taylor Fladgate, one of the most impressive Port shippers, made this lovely Tawny to commemorate their 325th Anniversary. Fresh, lively, (and wonderfully priced), it has all of Tawny’s compelling flavors—a swirl of toffee, figs, brown sugar, plums, vanilla, and crème brûlée yet (like a great dessert) it’s not at all sugary or saccharin. In fact, on these still cool nights, a small glass of this and a bit of hard cheese is just about the perfect way to end the night. (20% abv)
