TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

This red port from Quevedo boasts the same ruby color as its namesake. It is made from a mix of ports from different harvests, bottled young to preserve its coloration and freshness as well as to prevent oxidation. The fruitiness of cherry, raspberry, and redcurrant with a hint of anise waft straight out of the bottle on opening, and the wine itself is dense and full-bodied with clear tannins. Its lingering notes are of a deeper, darker fruit variety: plum and black fruit jam.


PAIRINGS

Best served slightly chilled, ruby port pairs well with desserts and appetizers both. For a light repast or the beginning of a meal, a small glass goes well with stuffed olives and pickles. Whether you count cheese as a dessert or meal starter, the more mature, aged variants are best. This port goes from a dessert range of apple pies, cheesecakes, and flans to an array of chocolate cakes, puddings, and truffles. We love it with everything from the Michel Cluizel Chocolates – Noir Collection. However, should you want to sip your port in the middle of a meal, it pairs well with a simple steak or stew, too!


FROM A UNESCO-RECOGNIZED REGION

The Douro has been known for its designated vineyards since the mid-1700s, making it the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. Grape harvest and winemaking in the valley date back 2,000 years, giving the awe-inspiring terraced vineyards on either side of the Douro River Valley recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Port wine from this valley is considered a cultural treasure of Portugal, with afficionados from around the world flocking to see and participate in the harvest season every September.
