Smith Woodhouse Port Blend Porto Vintage 2007
93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...the finest young vintage I have tasted from this fine property. The bouquet is very, very floral and compelling, as it jumps from the glass in a blend of violets, black cherries, plums, dark chocolate, very gentle black pepper notes and a nice base of soil... full-bodied, deep and very suave, with an early silkiness that is very appealing, coupled to ripe, fine-grained tannins and superb length and grip on the complex finish... this is clearly the sleeper Port of the vintage of the examples that I have tasted. It should offer remarkable value. 2025-2100. (Jul/Aug 2009)
Dark ruby color. The alcohol distracted me from appreciating the floral and red fruits aromatics here. Dry in profile with smooth raspberry and blueberry fruit and quite easy to approach and enjoy due to submissive tannins. Although attractive this is not a big wine but it is really well-balanced which brought up the scorecard. Drink now through 2025.

External Reviews for Smith Woodhouse Port Blend Porto Vintage
A classic vintage for Port; a cooler growing season means fruit is less assertively dried or jammy. Notes of espresso, violets and black currant are unavoidable ont he palate and nose. Made exclusively from one harvest at the house's Qunita, or small vineyard in the Rio Torto. Following 2 years in oak, the wine is transfered unfiltered to bottle, where it can mature for decades. It is during this long bottle ageing that the young wine becomes Vintage Port.
Deep dark ruby colour. Wonderful liftedaromas of 'esteva' and roses. Very maturefruit imparts raisin flavours and a thick cassisstructure. Layers of ripe fruit promise well forthe future.
Wine Spectator Now we are talking. Wow. Aromas of licorice, flowers and crushed blackberries. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with lovely smooth, fine tannins and a long, sweet fruit finish. Greatest young Vintage Port of Smith Woodhouse I have ever

An under-rated producer, Smith-Woodhouse has turned out a port with an impressively saturated dark ruby/purple color.

Moderately sweet, richly textured and eminently elegant, this is an exceptional release from an often underrated house.
Wet earth, stemmy and ripe fruit character. Fresh; medium in body and sweetness, offering fine tannins and a long finish.
