A gentle old port that shows its age with walnuts, salted peanuts, plums, dried cherries and raisins. Slightly lifted nose. Heady. It’s full-bodied and layered with intense sweetness. But tannic austerity balances it out. Chocolate and walnuts at the end. Gorgeous, after-dinner port.

Malty, savory, and rich, with sweet, pruney fruit and powerful, salty lenth.

The 40-Year Old Tawny (2017 bottling) has a lifted bouquet of marmalade, clove and singed leather, quite deep with hints of dried quince coming through. The palate is lively and vibrant on the entry, quite spicy with clove and ginger, very cohesive.

Alluring, with a warm date and gently mulled fig and peach core, while light alder, bitter almond and candied ginger notes add sparkle and texture along the edges. Frankly sweet through the finish but with the energy for balance.
