Wine Review: This mahogany colored Tawny Port opens with a walnut and spiced rum bouquet with hints of molasses, prune. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is round and savory. The flavor profile is mainly a coffee and rum-soaked tiramisu and fig newton blend with notes of raisin, olive and hazelnut. Overall, they did a nice job managing the alcohol. We would suggest sipping this very good port with a slice of pecan pie. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Intense amber tawny color. Opulent and voluptuous nose of complex spicy, jammy and nutty aromas, hints of orange flower and a fine oakiness coming from the long period of aging in cask. The palate is full of very rich and concentrated flavor and has a long mellow finish. It is an excellent complement for a crème brulée or a plate of wild strawberries.
