The 1996 Starboard Vintage is complex with a delicious black cherry quality that pairs well with chocolate or with cheese. At the time of its release in 1998, this wine was considered to be the best Vintage Starboard yet. For port lovers, this is a real favorite: bold and rich, with plenty of tannin and spice.

In 1979 we arranged for a selection of Portuguese varieties to be planted in Frank’s vineyard at the 2000 foot elevation in the California foothills east of Sacramento. In the mid 1980’s we began buying grapes from another Amador County Vineyard, which contains the Tinta Cao and Touriga Nacional varietals. Vintage Starboard has been made from these Portuguese varieties since 1987.

The 1996 Starboard Vintage has spent over fifteen years in the bottle and is ready for drinking. Maturation in the bottle as opposed to barrel results in wines which better retain the fruit flavors from the grapes. We have less than 200 cases left of this delicious vintage.

These Starboards are available to Quady Club members only and are in very limited supply. For more information about obtaining a 1996 Starboard Vintage, contact us.

Delicious black cherry quality.
