Tasting Notes

We started JM's Port project in 2019 after an inspiring trip up the Douro River in Portugal.  John decided to do a long-term Port project focused on producing Tawny Port.  Tawny Port is a blend of multiple vintages of Port (commonly, 10-40 vintages blended and aged in barrel). This process continues indefinitely; we are hopeful that this project goes beyond our lifetime and through the next generation. 

Many of you have had a chance to taste JM's Port over the last three years and the consistent request has been to bottle some for our wine club.  In 2022 we bottled 150 cases of JM Cellars Ruby Port. JM's inaugural release of Port is a Ruby Port, made by blending three vintages; 2019, 2020 and 2021.  The color is dark ruby red, and it is showing deep cherry, blackberry and raisin flavors and aromas highlighted by a beautiful sweetness, essential to great Port.  
We made the wine with three of the primary Port grapes of Portugal; Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cão, and Souzão, sourced from a special vineyard called Lonesome Springs Ranch.  The three varietals were harvested the same day each fall, co-fermented, and fortified with Aguardente (raw brandy made from JM Cellars red wine to 160 proof brandy at our friend's distillery, JP Trodden).   
We bottled our Ruby Port in a full 750 ml bottle, but you do not need to finish this bottle in one sitting.  After opening, store it in a cool, dry environment and it will last for 4 - 6 weeks.  Enjoy JM's Ruby Port with blue cheese and/or dark chocolate desserts.
