A vin doux naturel, or a wine that is fortified during fermentation. Some residual sweetness remains because the yeast has not yet depleted all of the natural sugars in the must. Six major grape varieties are grown throughout Portugal's Douro valley in steep, rocky hillside vineyards. After fortification, wines are classified either into bottle or wood-aged ports. Bottle aged ports include ruby and vintage, the most expensive. Wood aged ports are further aged before release in barrels, and thus are further developed, or oxidized, by the time they are bottled. Tawny and late-bottled vintage ports are in this category. A glass of port is a nice way to round down an evening. Serve 1 ounce in a port glass or in a very small white wine glass with blue-veined cheeses, bittersweet chocolate, or cigars. Vintage ports require decanting off of their sediment and spoil within 48 hours of opening. If you are just starting out, try $12 ruby port and compare it with the sweeter tawny version.
