About Cellar Selections

Cellar Selection is a designation for wines or beers that our tasting panels feel will improve with proper aging in climate-controlled conditions, like a wine cellar or basement. 

In red wines, cellaring will give the wine's initially coarse tannins time to separate and settle, making way for the full potential of its structural elements and flavor to shine. 

In white wines, aging has numerous beneficial effects on sugar and acidity, especially in many substantial dessert and sparkling wines: flavors become more integrated and mineral, nutty, and yeast-driven secondary and tertiary flavors can emerge.

Best Cellar Selections For Fortified Wine

Romariz 2017 Vintage 2017 Douro
89 points
Deep purple color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate ganache, ripe blueberries, spiced pastry, honey, and licorice with a slightly chewy, lively, very sweet medium-to-full body and a subtle, medium-long finish with accents of stewed raisins with chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A dense and sturdy vintage port that should age gracefully, youthful now but will develop into a complex wine worthy of a special occasion. Drink 2025-2030.
