Enjoying a new port with my wine buddy. The top note is spicy with a kick. There is a fruity element. Underneath its dry and smooth. We like.

$20달러에 산 오랜만에 마시는 포트와인! 오스본에 비해 향이 더 부드럽고 끝맛이 좋다~! 가격대비 완전 만족! 다음엔 10/20년 숙성시킨 놈으로다가 마셔봐야겠다

Made from Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca by skilful blending of wines that are matured for a minimum of 10 years. Beautiful topaz color with gentle sweet aromas of spice and almonds. On the palate dried red fruit flavors, well balanced with acidity, very fresh taste. Lingering finish ending with pleasant oak and honey tones. One of the best 10 year Tawny's I have tasted.

The "vintage" is the bottling year. Lovely dark fruit, (figs, raisins, plums) along with some molasses sweetness. Sweet Mother makes a pronounced guest appearance. She's always welcome.
Update: she's been hanging out on my counter and has opened up, exposing even more raisiny dark fruit delightfulness. Sweet Mother has been blended nicely into its fold of tasty happiness. To quote a great wine aficionado, smiling on a Monday is better than not smiling. Go Tigers!

Consoling myself with this after having to miss an annual party that features port in a replica Holmes studio. This is good, quite nice. Nothing epic, but still good.

Smoky, rich and smooth. Great for after dinner. The slight sweetness pairs wells with a slightly sweet dessert.
