Delicious 10 year old tawny. Rich dark fruit balanced with subtle oak. Lovely nutty notes and some spice on the finish too.

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.

Fully developed flavors of red cherry, blueberry with an array of floral accents. Flavors of hazelnut, bitters, dry spice and coffee lingered on the palate. Showed true tipicity.

Pairs perfectly with a fire and a strawberry rhubarb pie.

In 1912, Andrew James Symington became a partner in Dow's and today, five members of the fourth 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. Amber color with aromas of sweet dried fruits, citrus and nutty notes. On the palate sweet ripe fruit, vanilla oak, ending with fig and cacao notes. Smooth, Nice value. Tasting Sample.
