Warre’s Otima 20 Port

Warre's Otima 20-year old aged port

I had been saving this bottle of Warre’s Otima 20-year-old port for a special occasion, and what could be more special than two feet of snow in Vancouver and a serious urge to hibernate? It’s rich and perfectly – but not cloyingly – sweet, with a walnut aftertaste. And I’m not just being a pretentious snob when I say that, because it really does taste like walnuts.

It’s perfect with blue cheese or chocolate, but probably not both at the same time. You can get the 10-year-old vintage at BC Liquor Stores, but the 20-year-old vintage is harder to find. Some higher-end restaurants have it on their dessert wine list. Both ports are multiple award winners, so it’s definitely worth the effort to track one down.
