    December 21, 2016 - From memory. We used this bottle as a reference when tasting older vintage port and LBVs. This one was substantially lighter, both colour (think red burgundy) and footprint, but had balance and a good finish. I would say red (mostly dried) fruits, nuts, and touch of raisins. Not too sweet. Comes across as quite young, although I have no references to say whether this can benefit from aging. We tried it to cote de boeuf and peppercorn sauce (ok), gingerbread and stilton (the better combo) and chocolates (less successful).

    June 26, 2016 - From a half bottle. Lovely, rich and mouth-filling, with decent acidity to back up the sugar. There are some red fruits perceptible with the caramel and raisin notes. Not very deep or complex, but very satisfying.

    My last bottle if this stuff. Sincerely speaking this is not my sort of tawny. Too much sweet, unbalanced alcohol, undelicate raisins aromas.
    Can't match cured cheese.

    Embotellada en el 2011.
    La última con este relleno. Hablando claro no es mi Oporto. Demasiado dulce, alcohol desequilibrado, aromas a uvas pasas poco refinados.
    No pudo competir con un queso curado.
