Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Opened 375ml bottle. Made from Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca by blending wines that are matured for a minimum of 10 years. Nice topaz color with gentle sweet aromas of spice and almonds. On the palate dried red fruit flavors, well balanced with lively 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 375ml was a perfect size.

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.

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.
