With today's Buy the Case Special, the Quinta de Ventozelo 2000 LBV Vintage Port, pay only $10 per bottle for an exquisite LBV Port and save 66%!

A quick primer: Late Bottle Vintage Ports, or LBVs, are Ports sourced from grapes of a single vintage that are aged for 4 to 6 years in large wooden casks known as Toneis. Oak aging softens the edges, making these wines more approachable upon their release into the market. LBVs are delicious, food-friendly and à propos sans cuisine. What's not to love, especially at $10 per bottle?

Today's ridiculously good offer came to us because of a series of occurrences in the industry that left this wine without an importer. The distributor needed to make room for the arrival of new products and was motivated to find it a home. We swooped in, made an offer, and now we have a $30 LBV Port that's YOURS for a sawbuck. BOOM!

The deets: The Quinta de Ventozelo 2000 LBV port is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, and Tinto Cão fermented in traditional lagares at the Quinta. Grapes were foot-crushed without de-stemming: grape skins and stems were mixed with the must to extract the maximum amount of aromas, color and flavors. When the ideal residual sugar levels were achieved, the young wine was fortified by adding 100% natural grape brandy, stopping the alcoholic fermentation and preserving the grapes' natural sugars. The wine spent 4 years in 550-liter casks made of native oak and chestnut and was lightly filtered (from winery notes). Full-bodied, soft and fruit-driven, it displays ultra ripe blackberries and black cherries on the nose and palate, with accents of cocoa, vanilla and oak.
