May 12, 2019 - Fantastic, deep, rich and full.
April 20, 2019 - Decidedly better than I remember. Very rich wood flavors, a bit stickier than I typically like but coats the mouth and has staying power. Lots of cherry, smoothed our well.
August 8, 2018 - incredibly complex, mahogany, leather, turbinado, candied mandarin, raisins, prunes, good VA, lingering
November 22, 2017 - Prefer Taylor smoothness, this feels rough and overly sticky to be honest. Nice qpr but I don’t love it to death for a 40 yo. Good tawny though.
June 29, 2017 - Drank head to head against Taylor Fladgate 40 year old Port. The Leonardo has deeper flavors, more concentrated and robust, and a touch more acidity, adding to the experience. Rich, thick, deep flavors of plums, cream, slight citrus, caramel. Very long finish. Intense bouquet.
October 5, 2016 - Tasty, Caramel, smoked wood, great finish and just not enough so I had another glass.
September 2, 2016 - Outstanding. Won't assign this a formal rating because I don't know tawny port that well, but for just me I'd say 94-95. Has a madiera quality and a richness that would be so perfect with a salted caramel + chocolate desert. We had this on its own after dinner and it worked like that too.
June 12, 2016 - Opulent
January 19, 2016 - Medium apricot color, smooth, bursting with flavors. Enjoyed over several days.
January 15, 2016 - Very deep wine, with intense raisin, caramel, chocolate and citrus flavors. Very lifted, with creme brulee and lemon notes. It's the sharp, intense and focused acids here that impress and add balance to the sweetness. Superb tawny.
