Description

92 Points Wine Spectator.

This delicious 20-year-old Tawny from the house of Ferreira is a perfectly balanced rendition of the style. Aromas of sweet chai spices, confit of dark fruits and hints of orange peel lead to a sumptuous palate, where the nutty, aged flavors engage with the fresh, fruity bright tones to create one beautiful port. This is a spectacular value

reviews:
3 points Wine Enthusiast
Always great, this is softer, less intense than in the past. But there is still great richness, and power as well as smoothness, burnt caramel blending well with the spirit, and finishing with its inimitable fresh acidity. (11/2007)
92 points Wine Spectator
Rich, smooth and polished, exhibiting an array of dried apricot, pear and guava flavors that are accented by plenty of apple wood smoke notes. The lush finish surges with mineral, along with hints of peat and ginger cream. Drink now. 300 cases imported. (12/2010)
Jancis Robinson
Lovely complexity of a 20 year old - citrus and nuts and still a sweetness of fruit. Intense and dry-tasting with good freshness and surprising depth of fruit. (8/2009)

Condition

excellent - please note that 20 years refers to the average age of the contents. this is a blend of multiple vintages to achieve a constant house style. This is included under the vintage as many customers like these bottles to celebrate a 10 years anniversary.
