2012 Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port - Douro, Portugal
The jewel-tone hue of this LBV port is so stunning, you almost want to wear it. But don't try that, because this luscious, after-dinner diamond belongs only on your lucky palate, with its concentrated flavors of crushed, wild blackberries and cassis. But its not just a pretty face with flashy fruit - we love how this rides into the finish with spice-box notes the likes of freshly-grated nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove, with a "ta-da!" lingering finish of flint and espresso bean. Get thee to a chocolate cake. Like, now.
