Kopke Colheita 1974 £99.50

From the oldest port house in existence, founded in 1638 by German diplomat Christian Kopke, this is a single vintage tawny port. Tawny ports do all their aging in barrel, so it almost matters less the year on the front: when it was made, and more the year on the back: when it was bottled. This Tawny was bottled earlier this year, (as in 2014) has Kopke’s deep caramel signature, honey and almond flavors with a hint of smoke leading to a memorable finish. 

Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Napa Valley £35.95

Established by Walt Disney's daughter, Diane Disney Miller, and her husband, former Disney CEO Ron Miller in 1981, Silverado is probably the most successful retirement project we've ever come across. Unlike most Californian wineries, SIlverado does not buy in grapes, the family owns all the vineyards. In the Estate Cabernet the grapes are mostly from their Mount George and Stag's Leap (one of the oldest 3 vineyards within the Stag's Leap appellation). The Estate is now run by Diane & Ron's children, and in recent years has embraced sustainable farming, with certified organic and 'Napa Green' certification.  

"Caberet Frank" Cabernet Franc 2012 Lodi £7.99

A smooth, medium bodied and easy drinking wine that strikes a lovely balance with its blackberry, plum and dark cherry fruit characters coupled with classic leafy tones. Made predominately from Old Vine Cabernet Franc (85%), the balance of Cabernet Sauvignon brings out even more of the finesse to this wine. A 'proper' wine that, for the money, is generous on all fronts.
