Best of the birthday wines (Shafer, Pahlmeyer, Whitehall, David Arthur)... wish I had more of it.

disappointing for such a highly touted wine and definitely the weakest of the birthday wines (Shafer HS 02, Whitehall Rsv 97, Quintessa 97, Pahlmeyer 02)

1880 Whitwham Porto Millennium

Port Blend more

12/14/2011 - dwhsieh wrote: NR

van Zeller (ex Quinta do Noval) discovered the 1880 Port in 1999 at a winery in Regua (river Douro) that was closing following the death of the owner. Cristiano was interested in acquiring stone lagares (foot treading tanks) for his new winery but they also asked if he was interested in any old stock. Most was uninteresting but at the rear of the winery were three 20,000 litre casks, two empty but one containing 10,000 litres of 1880 port, 10,000 litres having evaporated during the intervening 119 years. The intention was to bottle the wine as 100 year old (for the millennium) but that was not possible - according to the Port Wine Institute it could only be called 'over 40 years'- so the name 'Millennium Port' was chosen and the wording, agreed with the PWI, on the back label. The wine was bottled by Niepoort after adding 5 per cent of their 194 vintage.

Had a bottle at l'Artusi in NY - recommended by the wine director. Excellent wine - different than your basic super Tuscan or Piedmontese wine. Needs air but then wow!
