Olive bronze in color, this is an exotic, intense old tawny with layers of penetrating aromas and flavors of caramel, burnt sugar, chocolate, toffee, nuts and toasted spice in a dense, luxuriantly textured palate which is underscored by a fine, elegant acidic backbone.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Sweet, intense dried fruit and caramel flavors. A trace of salty-tamari notes. The perfect gift and a great accompaniment to a rich cheese or a cigar. (May 2012)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011 Finalist. Cola-like color. Meaty, very mature, oaky bouquet of prunes and mince meat. Tastes of raisins, oak, and baked fruits.Is nutty and nougat-like in extended finish. (May 2011)
An incredible example of an old Tawny port. A rarity, as few houses will make a 40 year old tawny. This wine is olive gold in colour with rich caramel, butterscotch, hazelnut flavours. The concentration in this port also produces a wine with amazing length, which lingers beautifully in the palate.
