White Port: Not as sweet as other Ports. Served chilled and often used as a mixer in cocktails.
Ruby Port: Inexpensive, with little bottle aging. Simple, red fruit flavors.
Young Tawny Port: Uncomplicated, onionskin-colored wine, less than three years old.
Aged Tawny Port: Blend of Ports from several years and barrel aged for many years, causing a tawny rather than a red color.
Late-bottled Vintage Port (LBV): Wine from a single vintage that is aged in wood, usually four to six years, then bottled.
Traditional LBV: Similar to LBV, but with extended bottle aging.
Vintage Port: Made only in declared "great" years, aged in oak for two years, then in bottle for many years to mature slowly. Usually has a good deal of sediment when decanted.
