About Smith Woodhouse 2016 Vintage Port

Smith Woodhouse is a Symington property under whose guidance they produce some of the finest Ports in a traditional style which means foot-stomping of the grapes in the large stone troughs. Aging is also traditional for this vintage age port. It spends two years in oak barrels before bottling. 2016 was an excellent vintage and this wine is a prime example.


Wine Enthusiast scored this 94 points saying "Full and rich, the wine has dark tannins and dense blackberry flavors. It is generous wine—juicy, perfumed and layered with impressive tannins. This is a wine with a long-term future, drink from 2028."


James Suckling scored this 96 points saying "This is extremely floral with dark fruit and plum character. Full-bodied, very tight and focused. It's a complete young vintage Port that is great from start to finish. Rio Torto fruit makes this great! Better in 2022."


Wine Spectator scored this 97 points saying "A serious Port in the making, loaded for bear with dark currant paste, warmed fig sauce and blackberry reduction flavors pouring through. The brambly grip is deeply embedded and there are gorgeous ganache and licorice snap notes hanging on the finish. Best from 2035 through 2055."
