A prominent port house, Delaforce was founded in 1868 by George Henry Delaforce, descendent of Protestant French Huguenots who had fled to London in the 17th century to escape religious persecution. Distinguished for its aged tawny ports, the brand, now owned by a company called Real Companhia Velha, has branched out into good table wines like this red. Dry on entry and juicy on the finish, it offers ripe currant, plum and chocolate flavours pulled tight by astringent tannins. Cellar it for up to six years. $20.15 in Quebec.
