Anyone ever drink port?

So... over the past several years I have really gotten into wine. At a tasting I had a port sample a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. So I started looking around... now most ports (if they're a vintage rather than a late bottle vintage) are bloody expensive. I happened upon a 2000 vintage Sivals for $28. Now, from reading I know that 2000 was a very good year for wine... so I talked to a sommelier friend and asked him about the port. He hadn't ever heard of it, but said if I found a 2000 vintage port for $28 to buy it and buy it now. So I did. I bought four bottles about 2 years ago.

The sommelier suggested I do this: wait until 2005/2006 to open any of the bottles. Then wait till 2010/2011 and open another. Then at 2015/2016 open the other two. That way I'll have two bottles when they are at their peak and the other two bottles I'll get to taste as they mature.

Last week we opened the first bottle. Holy shit, that stuff was amazing. I've had several different ports, but never a vintage. Most were tawny ports but I had a few LBVs. There is a MAJOR difference.

Our local vineyard charges $40 for their port. I would describe it as robitussenesque

You certainly shouldn't drink a lot of it... very sweet and conidering it's fortified wine, pretty alcoholic.

My opinion, of course. Now, my co-worker will buy 4 bottles at a time.

Here you go!

Port should be drank in the winter while sitting in front of a roaring fireplace and reading a good book.

When I first glanced at the thread title I thought it read "Anyone ever drink pot" and I thought to myself, why in the hell would anybody ever drink pot! New a guy that drank bong water once, Yuk bet it tasted like port. Can't stand the stuff, I can't drink wine at all, makes me sick as hell

I love a good Port wine. Only problem w/ Port is it's powerful flavor. Once you acquire a taste for it, the subtler flavors of "regular" wine are more difficult to appreciate. I read wine labels that discuss the subtle berry/nutty/vanilla flavors of a wine and I just can't taste it anymore. Now I long for Port

I was a sucker for port back when I had money. I haven't had any in years - port or money.
