This is classic ten year old style port with the rich palate well balanced so that the alcohol is not too fiery. It is brown with a hint of brick red with aromas of toffee, caramel, roasted almond, antique furniture and baked orange. It is full bodied and powerful with a long lingering finish. Enjoy on its own or with blue cheese, nuts and dried figs. Excellent length. Score - 91. (Steve Thurlow, winealign.com, Sept. 5, 2014)
Deep brick colour with amber rim. Rich and elegant nose combining aromas of ripe berry fruit with a delicate nuttiness and subtle mellow notes of chocolate, butterscotch and fine oak wood. Smooth and silky on the palate and full of ripe figgy, jammy flavours which persist on the long finish.
Great black fruit quality on the stylish nose which displays inky notes, a discreet herbal and mineral character and hints of liquorice. Beautifully complex, fine and elegant bouquet. Wonderful velvety texture on the rich, concentrated and weighty palate which delivers heaps of flavour leading into a long finish crammed with sumptuous dark chocolate and liquorice.
Deep, red brick in colour, this tawny has aromas of ripe berry fruit, nuts and subtle notes of chocolate, butterscotch and fine oak. It’s smooth on the palate which is full of ripe fig and cherry flavours persisting on the long and spicy finish.
