Product description

Taylor’s Fine Ruby a blend of full bodied Port wines aged for around two years in large oak vats in Taylor’s cellars, or ‘lodges’, in Vila Nova de Gaia. As they age, they gain smoothness and elegance while retaining their fruitiness, intensity and youthful ruby colour. They are then blended together for balance and consistency. With its firm tannins and concentrated fruitiness, Fine Ruby is perfect for the classic port-and-cheese combination. It is particularly good with blue-veined and richly flavoured soft cheeses. It also pairs well with berry fruit and dark chocolate flavours and, like all red Ports, makes an excellent after dinner drink.

    It's just ok. Can tell its young by the harsh bite from not being aged, kind of like a young mead. Still, not a bad Port.

    The fine Ruby is very good. A great night cap! The Tawny isn't bad either but the Ruby it's a tad better in my view.

FAQs

Port wine is a strong Portuguese fortified wine that has been produced since 1678. Because of its rich flavor and sweet taste, it is most often savored as a dessert wine. It is bottled and aged in the Douro region of Portugal.
As a well known dessert wine, port is traditionally enjoyed at the end of a meal, typically with a cheese plate and dried fruits as an accompaniment. It is claimed that a glass of port before bedtime will aid in sleep.
The two main styles of port wine are named after their coloring. Ruby ports have more of a fruity flavor and a reddish ruby color while tawny ports tend to be light brown with a nutty, caramel flavor. The production process is the same, but ruby ports are aged in large oak casks and tawny ports are aged in small oak barrels.
Port wine is named for Oporto, a town in the Douro region of northern Portugal where it is bottled and aged. The wine was originally known as Oporto wine and eventually just shortened to port.
