Portugal's Douro Valley is one of the most spectacular wine growing regions in the world. Its beauty is the result of many centuries of work by the river Douro itself, carving steep, towering banks into the landscape, and by the inhabitants of this region, who centuries ago undertook the nearly impossible task of planting vineyards here. Forming terraces on these rocky slopes was difficult enough, but the harsh climate and limited rainfall, characteristic of the Douro Valley, made the work of winemaking a difficult enterprise indeed. The rewards of this labor are the superb wines of the Douro, wines that have taken their place among the best in the world. Smith Woodhouse wines come from the Upper Douro, famous for its top rated production. The majority of the wines are still produced by treading the grapes by foot in stone lagares. Smith Woodhouse’s wines are largely sourced from the Madalena vineyard. This small Quinta (vineyard property) has the highest “A” quality rating and is located in the Read more »

  • Smith Woodhouse Porto Vintage 1997


    Lots of cedar and rich dark fruit. It's only been decanting for 3 and a half hours. I suspect it will improve with more decanting (or more time in the bottle had I not opened it). It's a very solid vintage port at a fairly low price point ($55). I've certainly had better, but it's alright. Read More

  • Smith Woodhouse Porto Late Bottled Vintage 1995


    Sophisticated and wild, off-sweet, with black licorice and plum up front; predominantly slate-mineral feel in the mouth and finishes brilliantly -- smooth cracked pepper draw with notes of hard candy; cries out for a chocolaty Cuban cigar; absolutely lovely though perhaps too understated for many buying a $30 port. Drinking well in 2010 and prob... Read More
