I can't say that I have ever met a port that I didn't like. After my father introduced me to some very nice well aged Grahams port my wife bought me some significantly cheaper Benjamin Tawny Port which is a good tawny that is inexpensive. I have enjoyed everything in between and still pick up a bottle of the Benjamin when I see it at the store.

I discovered port about 2 years ago and though I love it I have to admit my utter lack of sophistication. All I know is I like a nice glass of tawny. Usually a Quinta if memory serves. Hopefully I'll learn something here.

Had a very nice 20 year old Fonseca Tawny last night with dessert. It was quite excellent. A wonderful bouquet with plenty of caramels, and subtle tones of cherry and almond.

With the necrocomment of the year, as to Bens question about nice cheeses to go with ports, I like the normal "accesoire" cheese would be the Stilton, but other of the same variety works well also, iow blueskimmeled* cheeses like Gorgonzolas, Danablues etcetera. They are hefty enough in the taste that they complements the sweetness of the port extremly well...

Blueskimmeled are a direct translation of the Norwegian word for the sort of cheeses I`m thinking of - have unfortnunatly no idea about the english word for i

I have a 1975 Quady 20 year Ruby that I have not opened yet. Waiting for the right moment, I suppose.

My go to has been a surprisingly inexpensive 10 year tawny by Niepoort

I LOVE PORT! I call it God's blood I love it so.

I'm not sure I've ever really had vintage though, the ones I've had were 10 year olds.

What is a good cheese to go with a nice glass? Yesterday I had some cheese and port, I think Havarti seemed to make the port taste a little too bitter but Brie was ok.

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.
