90pointsD'Arenberg 2006 The Vintage Fortified Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

Although this is fortified, it's not overly so, with the finished alcohol level resting around 18%. The result is a decadently sweet mash-up of brandy-macerated raspberries that turn chocolaty on the finish. Although it lacks the complexity, tannic grip and minerality of the best true Ports, it's a tasty drop nonetheless. Drink now-2025. Joe Czerwinski
