Editorial Reviews for Sandeman Port Blend Porto Founder's Reserve
Lightly aromatic on the nose with hints of evolution that make the nose reminiscent of a tawny Port. Light touches of caramel and sweet root vegetables mingle with tight candied blackberry aromas. A bit sweet on entry, this uses its sweetness well, balancing it with flavors that mimic the edge of evolution shown on the nose. The fruit here is pretty red for Port, featuring cut plums, raspberries and a really fine edge of dried orange peel. Complexity replaces power, with lovely chocolate and liquorice tones popping on the long, very focused finish. 89pts
The nose showed intense cherry liquor, almond extract, dark chocolate and a hint of heat. On the palate it was massive yet still juicy with saturating black cherry and sweet spices that seemed to touch on all the senses. The palate coating finish is long showing chocolate-covered cherry and seemed to melt slowly away.
This porto is surprisingly good for one that can be bought on a supermarket shelf. The combination of red fruits and aged wood is very balanced. The clean, dry finish sneaks up delightfully after a good warm rush of fortified goodness.
This was a fun one, the color was very unexpected (my limited Port experinece, somehow I was expecting this to be like brandy!), but this looked like wine! It had a nose of some higher alcohol, but the taste was refreshing, fruity and a little sweet, but very different from brandy! The best part was enjoying the virtual tasting with some friends and experimenting with some cocktails. We tried our own versions of the Founders Lemonade and the Cosmo, and they were just outstanding! Great cocktails for a summer evening and lots more fun available at the Sandeman website!
Sandy, dusty nose. Rustic bramble fruit, kirsch. On the palate, sweet red berry-dominated fruit. Some black berry and toffee. Rather like Bit O'Honey. Raspberry liquer, brandied cherry. Nice and with god acid. 89 pts.
For under $20, this is one of the better Port wines I have had. Pours a deep dark and clear ruby color. Ample scents of dark fruit and dark berries with a mild undertone of charred wood. From start to finish there is ample plum, raisin, dates and blue/black berry flavors. A nice long lasting creamy texture of dark jam is left on the palate. An excellent value pick if you enjoy drinking Port. This could easily, for me anyway, be my 'everyday' port wine.
Dried cherries and raisins on the nose, smooth and round on the palate, peppery, lingering finish.
a truly wonderful ruby for a very fair price. beautiful hints of cherry, chocolate, and anisette with a hue of vanilla. interesting yet easy to drink. shows a surprising amount of character. bravo!

This intense ruby red colored port is brilliant and clean. Rich red fruit aromas with a touch of age create an elegant reflection of powerful flavors. This is well balanced on the palate and it gets much better with age. Enjoy now or later.
Could use a little more complexity, but fresh and fruity, with lots of flavors. Medium sweetness.
One of the most familiar of Reserve Port brands, this is a fruity, soft wine, which seems to have aging potential as well as present drinking pleasure. The flavors are open, generous, easy, with just a touch of tannin to give it structure. A definit... Wine Enthusiast. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. N.V. Sandeman Port Founders Reserve 750ml
Very jammy aromas here, while the wine is ripe and full. It has a soft character, all plum and blackberry flavors, the tannins just showing at the end to balance.
Intense ruby red colour, brilliant and clean. Rich red fruit aromas with a touch of age create an elegant reflection of powerful favours, the fruit and fire characteristic of young classic Porto balanced with the finesse of age.
