Royal Oporto Tawny Port 10 year old
This superb 10 Year Old Tawny Port, patiently aged in selected old oak casks, is a classic example of the Company's style of blending. During its ageing process, its young characteristics of fruit aromas and flavors begin to disappear and are replaced by subtile, mellow notes where it is possible to predict reminiscences of spice, nuts, licorice, vanilla and fruit jam.
While it is quite dark in color, this wine still has plenty of good, 10-Year Oldfresh fruit flavors. Perfumed and delicate, it has light sweetness and a good layer of fruit and wood acidity, leaving a dry aftertaste. Its quality is an indication of the impressive improvements that have occurred at Royal Oporto in recent years.
A broad, rich style, with dark raisin, dried plum and caramel notes, backed by a light hint of sandalwood through the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.
