Winery Note:

Amber golden in colour, soft and rich on the palate with a fine and mellow fruit flavour blending in with the almond overtones of prolonged cask aging. A very fine Port to be savoured in a reasonable sized glass so that the aromas and colour can be appreciated. Serve slightly chilled in warm weather.

Wine SpectatorSolid, with hazelnut, fig, plum cake and dried cherry notes in lockstep from start to finish. A streak of hazelnut husk tilts to the drier side of the tawny spectrum, resulting in mouthwatering cut on the finish. Drink now. 3,200 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe NV 10 Year Old Tawny Porto is a field blend coming in with 115 grams per liter of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It was bottled in 2018. Some 10s are bright and lively. This goes in another direction. It opens with broad flavors, caramel and milk chocolate, not showing much complexity, which is as expected for a 10 Year Old; however, it adds surprising power for a 10. The fruit is not very expressive, as it finishes dry and stern. The mid-palate is solid for the level. While this doesn't have the intrigue of older bottlings, it is no slouch in that power department. There is plenty of grip on that finish.
