Floral aromas of rockrose and violets of the Franca deliver superb elegance, finesse and harmony. The sizeable contribution from the old, mixed vines show through in the gorgeous layers of liquorice and blackberry fruit. The seamless spicy tannins give grip and authority to this Vintage Port. Smith Woodhouse 2011 Vintage Port pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse, creamy blue cheeses like Stilton or Roquefort.

Offers an aroma of violet, with powerful, concentrated and refined flavors of raspberry, kirsch, blueberry and spice. Lengthens out midpalate, showing fine grip and a luscious finish filled with cream, hazelnut and chocolate. Best from 2030 through 2060. 1,000 cases made.

Perpetually underrated, the 2011 Smith Woodhouse, which is founded upon very old vines at Quinta da Madalena in the Torto Valley, has a broody but intense bouquet of blackberry, kirsch, Oriental spices and a slight resinous note. It is very well-defined - but serious. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity, and a lovely spice note at the side of the mouth that leaves the mouth tingling long after it has departed. Very harmonious and long, this is a wonderful Smith Woodhouse. Excellent. 1,000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013.

This wine offers berries, black currants and just a hint of greenness. It has fruitiness and a dry structure, just not the weight of the vintage.
