I won't beat poetically around the bush. This vintage Port (2012) is nothing short of astounding. It's got the savory nose one expects on a tawny, but bigger, blacker, more brutish. A heavy whiff of smoke never goes away, and the earthy aromatics stay right behind. The palate lets the fruit shine through, sweet and sultry, with an amazing level of acidity and oh-so-firm tannins. It's a great sip, but I'm saving the last glass to have with a steak.
