Tawny Port

Grandfather Rare Tawny Port Blend

Oh my. Recently I’ve discovered I AM a fortified wine person. IF it’s good. Can we revive this as a trend in the next few years? Because there is caramel nut magic here. I remember discovering caramel popcorn as a kid. And how amazing it was and no matter how many mouthfuls I got it was good and complex and sugary but salty and complex and this wine is that without being overbearingly sweet like the popcorn. The finish finishes...then comes back overwhelmingly intoxicating in every sense of the word. In-flippin-sane. — 7 days ago

Honestly, this gets me much more excited than the attempt to trend Sherry a couple years ago. Excellent note. Vivid.

@Isaac Pirolo it’s funny I shunned fortified for a long time. It’s not something for everyday glugging but it is truly special when you get the good examples!!

@Ellen Clifford Right there with you. A style/segment that will have an uphill battle for many years to come, but should not be ignored...

Ya I thought it looked a little light also. Maybe they are embellishing the age?

20 Years Old Tawny Porto

Sublime. Best after a few days of air, rather closed upon opening. Caramel, brown sugar, almonds, light acidity, perfect poise and balance. — 3 days ago
