1912 Andrew James Symington became partner in Dow's and today, five members of the 4th generation Symington family own and manage this historic house. 10 Years" indicates an average age – this Aged Tawny Port is a blend of older wines, matured in oak casts. Medium tawny color with aromas of sweet dried fruits, citrus and nutty notes. On the palate sweet ripe fruit, sweet cinnamon ending with fig, marzipan and cacao notes. Smooth, medium+ length. Nice value. Drink now, no bottle age benefit. Tasting Sample.

I wish I always had a bottle of this on hand! So good. Sweetness perfectly balanced by the alcohol.

Pleasant hazelnut and macadamia with a warm vanilla and caramel finish that isn't overbearing in sweetness. I enjoyed it a bit cooler than room temp and find a lot of fresh appeal in highlighting the acidity while subduing the alcohol. Nice stuff.

Love this guy. Simple but with depth. Chocolate and round dark fruits with some vanilla and oak. Lingers for a long time and is very satisfying.
