I've got some 2002 and some 2004 and I can't make up my mind which is better! I'm eagerly awaiting the next vintage as it's supposed to be outstanding

My site lists a couple of good ones from Barros. I love their Colheita ports and they are regarded as one of the leading brands in this style of port.

Starboard Batch 88 Port Style wine

I love the Starboard Batch 88 Port Style wine from Andrew Quady in the USA. He takes the mick by calling it Starboard and it uses the same grapes as used in most ports! It's a little less muscular than some port but a real delight and something a little different
