Vincente Arroyo produces our favorite port outside of Portugal and even then only the better vintages, as Vincent has a wonderful ability to extract a depth of flavor from Peitite Sirah like no other. Not overly fortified, it provides an unctuous balance of deep black fruit & chocolate. 2006 is a particularly excellent vintage in terms of the depth.
OK ... so it had only been 2 weeks since the last (and my last until next year's shipment) time we had this ... but she couldn't wait and wanted to share it ... me, I was thinking of hoarding it. This is great stuff! Great balance with great flavor, no overpowering alcohol like many ports, not overly sweet ... great with dark chocolate ... and this is the only way that I eat chocolate ... just let it melt in your mouth with the port ... it doesn't get much better!!
