This first bottling is a "solera style" of the 02, 03, 04, 05 and 06 vintages aged in neutral French barrels since their individual harvest.

The term “Fouled Anchor” is when a ship’s anchor snags or becomes “entangled” preventing one from leaving, or opening a port. This Non-Vintage Port is thus an entanglement of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, a different grape each year. A ship doesn’t want a fouled anchor, but you will enjoy untangling this delicious blend.

The “Fouled Anchor” is the emblem worn by Chief Petty Officers in the US Navy. All Naval Officers know that their ultimate success revolves around the abilities of their Chief Petty Officers. This Fouled Anchor Port is therefore in celebration of all the Chief Petty Officers that owners, Bob and Crista Claar Whitelatch, have worked with (the Chiefs would say “for”) in their combined 51 years of Naval Service. This Non-Vintage Port is the product of the last six harvests. It is a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, a different grape each year, depending on which one will add the most to the blend. Enjoy!

“Fair Winds and Following Seas”.

The bouquet contains aromas of Chocolate covered cherries, cloves, cinnamon, coffee liquor, vanilla and tobacco. On the palate sweet candy liquor flavors are pronounced and lead to mellow oak notes with a pleasant acidic tang that allows for a lengthy finish.
