Quinta do Infantado Vintage Port 1995
Another of the joys of California is that you can get smaller producers and older wines off the shelf for reasonable prices. I picked this bottle up at a great store called The Spanish Table, which, self-evidently, specializes in Spanish products.
I have not had a vintage port quite like this before. The nose was figgy with further notes of raisin, date, and prune – but not over the top; rather very refined. The palate was super spicey with the same characters as above, with a maple-like edge. This was simply brilliant with real character, depth and elegance. And, it proved to me that, dear god, aged port is good!

$24 at The Spanish Table
