Although I am not really a tawny kind of guy, it is hard to deny the greatness of this wine. A lovely red amber color with a nose of toasted nuts, caramel and golden raisins. The attack is a bright sweet symphony of toasted nuts and golden raisin. This attack gives way to salted caramel and a long soft tannic finish. My only complaint is there is some serious heat on the finish that makes it slightly unpleasant.

Fig, chocolate, coffee. A bit hot on the finish but very solid.

20 year old Tawny lasts about 5 minutes. Always the good way to end another great wine tasting

4th course - 20 year old port. We also have 10 year old, but come'on I'm not a pedophile.
