Generally, Port is an alcoholic percentage between 18% and 22% by wines, this is 15% as soon as you get the bottle Port's open, so this one's still limited, but at least he can be held longer after he's been opened than a bottle of wine

Ruby Port

The contact with oxygen makes the Port fuller and gentle, so after a bottle, it's been opened a few days later the Port has become better of taste than a fresh bottle. After opening of the most common Port de Ruby, this one will last for two-three weeks while a Late bottled vintage (LBV) better be drunk within a two-week and no longer preserve.

Tawny Porty

The Tawny and Colheita Port are undergoing a wood layer and then in contact with oxygen, after you open this port, it's not a problem for the port to reconnect with oxygen, and then this port will be held for more than a few weeks, and it'll be able to keep it.
