2007 Vintage Port Barrel Tasting Notes

James Suckling reviews more than 50 young sweet wines from this classic vintage

Vintage Port is one of the world's rarest wines, made on average only once every three or four years. Only about four dozen producers make this long-lived fortified wine in a given year.

In April 2009, senior editor James Suckling traveled to Oporto, Portugal, and blind tasted more than 50 barrel samples of vintage Ports from 2007, the newest declared vintage, before they went on sale as futures. He found some of the most structured yet refined young sweet wines he's ever tasted and ranks 2007 as a classic vintage, among some of the best modern years.

Below are the wines tasted for his report in the issue of Wine Spectator magazine.
