N.V. Smith Woodhouse Porto Lodge Reserve
Community Tasting Notes 16
November 29, 2016 - I have no real frame of reference for Ports of any type, but this is an extremely enjoyable dessert tipple for the price. Clean and densely fruited with only a touch of prune or raisin and no spirit. Will have it next with some NYD Stichelton.

September 18, 2015 - Please see note from 9/19/13. Still spot on. Terrific QPR. I should really drink Port more often to end my evenings; lasts a long time and it's delicious. Smith Woodhouse remains a favorite in the sub $25 category. 90-91 pts.

December 20, 2014 - I drink very seldom Port, but I do like it. Specially in winter or autumn nights. This is delicious, smooth, not overly sweet. Nice structure, quite big tannins, and some accidity. J`aime!

September 19, 2013 - Port always lasts forever at my place. I love it but don't often have it, and when I do the portions are small. But I love it, and this is an excellent Port. It's raisin-y, with some dark fruit and a little licorice as well. Velvety smooth, long finish, round and full. Delicious. Of course it's great with chocolate, but this one can be enjoyed thoroughly all by itself. Best Port I've had for under $25. Will restock! 90-91 pts.
