A fortified wine from Portugal (Vinho do Porto, Porto, and often simply called Port.) Made in different styles: Vintage Port, Ruby Port, Tawny Port, and Late Bottled Vintage Port.
Vintage Port (or Porto) is only made in certain years declared as vintage years. They usually require 20 or more years of aging in the bottle. The others are ready to drink when released by the maker.
Some of wines I have are labeled Port and some are labeled Porto.
Port styled wines are also made in California and Australia.
