In 1970 company changed ownership from founding family to the Symingtons, who have been Port producers since 1882 & through their Anglo-Portuguese great-grandmother, they trace Port heritage to 1652. Deep Amber color with delicate sweet nutty aromas. The palate showing notes of smoke, caramel, raisins & sweet figs. Long finish some honey, baked plum & hazelnut character. Very nice! 20-year is the sweet spot for affordability & style. Tasting Sample!

Now this is some tasty tawny port. A 20-year from @Grahams_port which boasts burnt orange peel, hazelnuts and walnuts and pairs perfectly with Tiramisu.
