Made from mostly pinot noir blended with a little merlot that’s aged for 10 years in old French oak, is the Linden Estate NV Port ($27)  Fruit is hand-harvested at the absolute highest ripeness level achievable for the given year and where possible, botrytised grapes are added to enhance the apricot notes in this sensationally syrupy, lusciously spicy style reminiscent of Christmas cake batter on the nose.  With mixed peel and warming, caramelised characters in the mid-palate and a long, nutty finish.  It’s easy to see why it’s a cellar door star.
