BURMESTER 10-YEAR-OLD

TAWNY PORT

DOP, Portugal

There is a lot of quiet tradition behind

Burmester’s Ports. They’ve been crafting

exceptional Ports for over 250 years, and

this one is sourced from old vines. A great

way to close a meal, it will work well with

blue-veined cheeses or fruitcake. Once

opened, it will last around two weeks.

FONSECA VINTAGE PORT 2009

DOP, Portugal

Founded in 1815, Fonseca is one of Port’s

best-known producers. Their 2009 is sweet,

with dark fruit, smoke, dark chocolate and

cloves. Complex and refined, this is a great

gift that will age for decades. If you want to

enjoy it tonight, decant for 2-3 hours before

you serve.

HIDALGO FARAON OLOROSO SHERRY

DO, Spain

Hidalgo is a classic producer that dates

to 1792. This Sherry is crafted in a dry,

big-shouldered style that is quite robust

and round. Intense nutty aromas, as well

as citrus and a flinty minerality. Serve with

aged cheeses for a truly classy end to

your evening.
