Attractive Tawny colour with a classic bouquet of nuts and almonds, finely balanced by some lovely mature fruit. On the palate beautifully rounded, with hints of dried fruits, and an intense nutty finish.

Solid, with hazelnut, fig, plum cake and dried cherry notes in lockstep from start to finish. A streak of hazelnut husk tilts to the drier side of the tawny spectrum, resulting in mouthwatering cut on the finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases made, 3,200 cases imported.

This is a rich, nutty wine, satisfyingly ripe, poised between sweet and dry. Its touch of spirit adds to the sweetness of the wine and balances with the acidity from wood aging. The wine is ready to drink.

The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Porto is a field blend coming in with 115 grams per liter of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It was bottled in 2018. Some 10s are bright and lively. This goes in another direction. It opens with broad flavors, caramel and milk chocolate, not showing much complexity, which is as expected for a 10 Year Old; however, it adds surprising power for a 10. The fruit is not very expressive, as it finishes dry and stern. The mid-palate is solid for the level. While this doesn't have the intrigue of older bottlings, it is no slouch in that power department. There is plenty of grip on that finish.
