Sandeman Fine Ruby Porto
Descended from the fiery ruby Porto Wines originally shipped by George Sandeman in 1790, Sandeman Porto Fine Ruby is still made traditionally to be rich and robust yet with a special depth of flavor and the finesse, achieved by expertly blending wines from Sandeman´s large and varied stock.
Brilliant red ruby in color, with clean aromas of red fruits, plums and strawberries, Sandeman Porto Fine Ruby has full rich flavors and is very well balanced. Rich, round, balanced in the mouth, with overt flavurs of fresh plums and red fruits.
Traditionally matched with full flavored and creamy cheeses, Sandeman Porto Fine Ruby combines well with chocolate desserts and fruit pies.
Wine EnthusiastSupple and fruity, this is a decent value in basic Port. Prune and plum flavors show a hint of raisining, but it finishes balanced and smooth.
Wine SpectatorLean and restrained, with focused spicy plum and chocolate flavors, gaining some interest in the tension between sweetness and alcohol. Despite some a ppealing flavors, it's an unusual style that won't appeal to everyone.
