Feist Vintage Port 1997 Wine Review (NW)


Tasting notes:

Very dry bouquet on the nose of dry earth, fennel, and cherry liqueur

Full bodied and firm on the palate

Long finish of prune, cherry, and pepper

Summary:

Vintage Port is always a treat! PB (0f The Wine Cask Blog) supplied this bottle at a holiday gathering and we enjoyed it over two evenings with chocolate torte and on its own. This wine is a relatively good deal at $45 and sipping on small pours makes it go a long way.

What I like about this Fiest is that it's quite dry for a Port but still has density and flavor. At 13 years old, it shows no signs of age at all. This also would have been good with a plate of strong cheeses. Raise a glass of Port!
