    August 11, 2021 - Tawny. How exciting can it be? A bit rough, some oak, some sweetness.

    June 11, 2021 - Retail $60. While I do not sample a ton of Port, I do cycle through a number of ten and twenty year old Tawnies (or is it “Tawnys”?). An amber mahogany in the glass with an aroma that could take several paragraphs to describe: honeyed hazelnut, dried fig, Christmas fruitcake (the good stuff), toasted raisin bread, caramel, dried apricot, roasted walnut. Yeah, a lot going on here. The palate is equally complex and quite sweet, although it stops short of cloying. Rich, unctuous, balanced with more than ample acidity, this is fantastic (and a good example as to why to spend the extra few bucks over a 10YO).

    May 13, 2020 - Mix of roasted nuts, hint of smoke and caramel in the finish. Medium length on the finish. Depending on the region good value for money.
