The members of the Delaforce family, of Huguenot origin, have a history linked to the wine trade, going back over 400 years. Their involvement in the Port Wine business dates back to 1834 when John Fleurriet Delaforce travelled to the city of Porto to found the new company of Martinez Gassiot on behalf of his partners. In 1868, his son George Henry Delaforce, inspired by the richness of the Douro and the world of Port, founded his own company, House of Delaforce.

"Made in a sweet, open-knit, precocious style, Delaforce's 2000 reveals a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet, accessible black cherry/blackberry fruit with hints of smoke, earth, and truffles. This lush, medium to full-bodied, juicy, succulent effort will last for 15+ years." - Robert Parker, 90 Points "Fresh and bright in feel, with a mix of green tea, star fruit, peach and persimmon notes forming the core, backed by light date abd salted caramel details on the finish. Shows lovely tension. A hazelnut husk accent lingers on the finish." - Wine Spectator, 93 Points Serve with blue cheese, mature cheddar, nuts, and chocolate desserts.
