Tasting notes
THE AGED TAWNIES reflect the art of oak ageing ; tawny port develops a rich creamy texture from the wood becoming more intense, golden amber in colour. Over times it takes on complex characteristics of walnuts, dried fruits and spices with a long peppery finish. Tasting Notes Light amber colour. Rich complex nutty bouquet reminiscent of mint and almonds. Full bodied, sweet and rich in taste with an attractive nuttiness and a lingering finish in spite of its age

 Wine Spectator 94 points (Jun 30 2011)
Intensely fruity, delivering vibrant orange zest, dried mango, apricot compote and baked apple flavors that are plush, well-structured and long. Notes of sage and honey mark the mineral-infused finish. Drink now. 25 cases imported. –KM
