Just found a bottle of white port that I didn't know I had in my cellar. Any good recipes worth sharing?


ya it's strawberry season here so they're cheap

take a bunch of strawberries juice it,
3 parts white port
1 part tequila
add lime to taste.

or take a peach and soak in it int he white port, when ready to serve, take a dash of brandy and place over.

or the traditional way is to use pears and soak it in white port.

These dishes would be significantly more fun if there was fire involved.


first one is a cocktail, you would crush and strain the strawberry juice in the white port.

last two are desserts that can certainly be with a side of crepes and flambéed

now you have me thinking a white port crumble with plums, pears or peaches would certainly work.

Listen now, you need to make sure you save one of the 1997 HS's to share with our group. Don't be drinking all of them Smile Seriously, has to be a good wine for you to warrant a 98 point score. Glad it showed well for you.

Sant'Elena Ros di Rol: A little Bordeaux-ish on the nose and palate, but a little lean on the fruit giving way for the acidity to stand out a bit too much for me. Served with burgers and a decent match. I believe this is a bit passed prime and if you have any and decide to open, be sure to finish the bottle cause I don't think it will be very giving on night two.

The best 90' HB I have had yet Board-O. The last one was off a bit I think. Still improving IMO...Not as good as the 89' but a point or 2 behind.

Haut Brion is excellent typically in off years and even better in great years. My favorite 1st growth because of this.

No, although I did tell Allred that I thought the Soave had a riesling profile. Smile

2009 Chateau La Tour Carnet.

I really liked this wine but way over priced from Uncle Pennybags.

1991 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon - Why can't they make 12.8% Abv wines anymore in the Napa Valley. Very Bdx in the flavor and aroma profile.

Curious how you found this wine. I gave up on it after 10 years and sold off all my bottles but always wondered what would happen over the long term.
