Most never will; '85 Fonseca is one of the greatest post War ports.

Just bought my first Port, Taylor Fladgate 10 year Tawney bottled in '12, off research. Also how long does Port stay good for after opening I have a stopper with a pump to take air out? I've heard different things online and would like your guys advice, if you don't want to clog up the thread with advice you can PM me! Thanks everyone!

6-8 weeks should be fine.
For me, it never lasts more than a few days to a week.

Talking Re: The Wine Thread

Thanks Peter, also I read that people store open bottles in the fridge (red wine in the fridge?) is this more for people that store it for months on end for cooking purposes only?

Never had a wine from PA, pretty neat.

VA is making some great wines, especially Barboursville Vineyards in Charlottesville, Virginia. Their wines are a tremendous value and will be widely heralded in the decades to come. Build a collection now and you'll be sitting pretty as prices skyrocket and availability of older vintages is scarce.

I'm no where near as knowledgeable as most on this thread but drink around 2-3 bottles of red wine a week (mostly Shiraz, Malbec, and some Cabs) and this was hands down the best Cab I've ever had, bought it at their winery- they ship if anyone's interested http://www.pennswoodsevents.com, having my first ever Tawney Port cigar combo with a RASCC def will not be that last time I pair a cigar with Port!!

Nice selection, Gabe.
The TF 10 is a nice tawny port. If you liked it and can spend the extra $$$, try the 20.

I'm not an experienced port drinker, but I've had that Graham's Six Grapes and quite enjoyed it.

Late Harvest Ports are also a cheap way to see what the Vintage version of the same wine will develop into. Vintage ports only spend 2 years in barrel whereas late bottled ports spend 4 years in barrel

6 Grapes is quite popular basic ruby port. Another one to consider is Noval Black; similarly priced. Taylor 10 is a solid 10 year tawny. You may want to try Ferreira or Ramos Pinto which are also among the best in the category. Each one of Taylor's tawny with an indication of age reflect well on what they are trying to accomplish.

Remember that 10 year tawny is not actually 10 years old. A sample is evaluated by the IDVP to represent a style of what a 10 year old tawny should taste like. They are mix of different aged colheitas blended to taste "10 years old".

Really? Carnival of Love normally goes for 2X that. That's a great price, and a great source you have found.
