Howdy all! A new guy here. I'd like some suggestions for a good tasting, smooth Port wine. I've tried some-[actually very few] that were bitter and just didn't taste good. Could you please suggest some brands for an admitted novice to try that you think would be good to start out with? I really like this forum and hope you can educate an admitted rookie when it comes to this! Thank you, Buckshot Bill

The best I've ever had was a Fonseca '27 Vintage. With Port, there are two things to remember: 1, the Port should be as old as the drinker, and 2, if you're not cooking with it - make sure it reads vintage on the label.

Hope that helps!

  • I've drank Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage 2000 and like it better than the Fonseca Bin 27. I can't afford $75-$100 a bottle for the older Fonseca Port. I'll give Dow LBV a try if it's not too expensive for my wallet.
