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.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Pure and balanced, with candied ginger, dried apricot, citrus peel and dried apple flavors. The intense finish features mineral and spice, with notes of white chocolate. Drink now. -KM

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)
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.
