Quarles Harris Port Blend Porto Vintage 2007
An attractive floral nose, with brambly black fruit and hints of cloves andcigar box. The palate is concentrated, dense and sweet, with balancing acidityand a surprisingly ascetic tannic structure to underline seriousness of intentand to underwrite potential and longevity.

horrible. the flavor of vinegar and blackberry brandy..gone bad.
Solid, dark, port, very sweet. Alcoholic nose (think C3H7OH) with a hint of tannins, but makes up for it with a wood-laden currant aftertaste.
AMAZING. FYI, they go for around $70-$90, but I picked up a few at Trader Joe's in San Diego for $39.
Beautiful port in superb balance and still with at least a decade of life left to it. Quite tannic at first, but opens up after a while in the glass. Full, still with some primary fruit showing (can you believe it) followed by rich sweetness of figs and raisins. finishing the bottle on day 2 was even better, where it was completely composed and together. Goes well alone as well as with sweet deserts, chocolate, and would I suggest even rich soups and braised meets.
Four and a half glasses
Nice for a tawny port.
