    November 15, 2014 - Pulled from a Corvine over the past 6 months or so. Consistently good, but not great. Big bites of toffee, fruit cake, burnt orange and nuttiness. Very fresh and creamy, but I'm realizing that I prefer 20 year tawnys.

    September 27, 2014 - This particular btl has been in the back of the cellar since '03. I found it drinking remarkably well. Very classic and typical tawny. Loved the orange spice aspect of this. Quite long. I expect this will hold nicely for several weeks under pump.

    August 11, 2014 - Orangey red. Quite spirity, redcurrant fruit. The palate is quite fresh, redcurrant but not alot else. Lacks complexity, much prefer other 10 year old tawny's.

    June 10, 2014 - Drank over a week. A solid tawny with a nice nutty and creamy palate but still just a tad too much heat on the end. I did like it, but wasn't in love.

  • Harley1199 Does not like this wine:

    April 28, 2014 - Ugly red colour.
    Nutty nose with artificial aromas.
    Indigestible. My mind is far away of this.
    Pairing assorted italian cheeses dish

    De un feo color rojizo.
    Nato almendrada con aromas artificiales.
    Indigestible. Mi mente está lejos de todo esto.
    Acompañando una tabla de quesos italianos variados.
