Tasting:

    Served at room temperature. Opaque, inky amber color with dark ruby tints. Dark fruit, cherry and hints of caramel aromas. Smooth, dense mouth-feel with generous roasted nuts, prunes and ripe cherry flavors that continue through a long finish that transformed into a nutty and light caramel taste with a slightly tart ending. Nicely balanced Tawny Port with just enough acidity and hints of sweetness to give it a light but invigorating character. So delicious and easy drinking that each sip just becomes the prologue for the next sip. Very nice Tawny Port that’s a SUPER value.
