Vintage Port is only produced in excellent vintages and is aged in cask for at least a year, then longer in bottle before release. Vintage Port is a real treat exuding flavors of caramel, peppercorn, coffee, and fig. Great way to finish your meal with stinky cheese and a pour (or two) of 1983 Churchill.
