The delicious red sweet port from Portugal is the Ruby Port. This port is recognizable in its dark red to purple-red color and has aromas of ripe dark fruit and is sweet of taste. A Ruby Port is a mix of several years, averaging 3 to 5 years old. They are simple and fruity because of their young age, and therefore less complex than a Reserve Ruby or Late Bottled Vintage Port. These Ports evolve gradually to an Vintage Port style. Ruby Port is made for immediate drinking and is not intended to be stored. Light cooled, it is a delicious drink on a warm evening. A opened bottled of Ruby Port will stay well for a long time, about 3 months. This port is delicious with a piece of soft cheese or sweet desserts.
The Ruby Reserve Ports have been on wooden cask for a long time, so the Reserve has more character and hints of wood. The Reserve is delicious with a cheese plateau and dried fruit. At Vinho do Porto you will buy the best Ruby Ports.
