Intense ruby red color, brilliant and clean. Rich red fruit aromas with a touch of age create an elegant reflection of powerful flavours, the fruit and fire characteristic of young classic Porto balanced with the finesse of age. Excellent on its own served in large glasses, Founders is a perfect match with cheeses or rich chocolate desserts.

Very jammy aromas here, while the wine is ripe and full. It has a soft character, all plum and blackberry flavors, the tannins just showing at the end to balance.

Fresh and vibrant, with good focus to the plum, dark currant and dark chocolate flavors. The balanced finish offers notes of berry and spice. Drink now. 25,000 cases imported.

The NV Founder's Reserve Ruby Porto is a typical Douro blend aged for four years in used Portuguese vats. It was bottled on October 15, 2018, with a bar-top cork and 100 grams per liter of residual sugar. Like many Reserve Ruby Ports, this doesn't have much body or power, but has beautiful aromatics laced with traces of eucalyptus and classic flavors. It drinks great and has a little grip on the finish in its youth. At the moment it is a bit too shy in the mid-palate but that does not detract much from the pleasure it offers. In particular, it expresses its fruit character beautifully. This is nicely priced as well, a solid choice for bargain hunters in an easy-to-find wine. There were 380,000 bottles produced.
