Find your Port in the Storm
Saturday, October 13 | 12-4pm | In-Store
We’ve been dealing with some pretty ugly weather over the past week, and it looks like more of the same is forecasted for next week. So we invite you to Make Zachys your “Port” In The Storm on Saturday, 10/13. Join us in tasting through Ruby, Tawny and even a 2009 Vintage port from the hottest Port producers on the market.
In a surprising twist this year our top selling ports have not been vintage ports, rather we seeing Tawny and Ruby ports being requested with more and more frequency:
Ruby Ports are known for their full body, fruit forward style … and of course their vibrant ruby glow. Although there are varying degrees of complexity, you can always count on CROFT to lead the pack in producing youthful, sophisticated and intensely fruity Ruby Ports. Their most recently released Fine Ruby Port garnered 90 points from Wine Spectator and is drinking beautifully!
On the other end of the spectrum, Tawny ports are rich and sumptuous, building with age notes of nuttiness and sweet baking spices. The Croft Tawny Port 10 Year Old (93 points from Wine Spectator) & Fonseca Tawny Port 20 Year Old (94 points from Wine Spectator) & Ramos Pinto Quinto do Bom Retiro 20 Year Port (93 points from Wine Spectator) are perfect examples of the elegance and character Port builds with age.
As an extra treat look for the 96 points Wine Enthusiast rated Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 – in a seriously decorated Port Vintage, this is a commanding Vintage Port that is absolutely not to be missed!
Come in out of the rain and join us on Saturday from 12pm to 4pm. We look forward to seeing you!
