Tawny Port

Fonseca

20 Year Old Tawny Port Blend

Had this a year+ ago, tried a new batch, noticed label color changed. A big fan of Tawny Ports, especially the 20 year blends are a Fav. Fonseca Port was founded in 1822 and successive generations of the Guimaraens family have upheld the Company’s reputation. Medium amber color with aromas of honey and pronounced nutty notes. On the palate ripe dried fruits with sweet cinnamon spice and oak emerge from the glass. Soft tannins long smooth finish ending with a sweet nutty character. Very nice. — 20 days ago

Quinta do Noval

Vintage Port Blend 2017

As the supplier said: either drink it young or drink it in 10 years or more. Today it was vibrant fruity: cherries and currants. Nice layered sweet and sour. A nose that keeps you busy — 6 days ago

Father 10 Years Grand Tawny Port Blend

Quite lovely! Honey, butterscotch, cedar, and bourbon. Complex and very refined. Medium thickness but deep and very long finish. Even a slight hint of Sauternes at the end. Great value. Drank over 3 months. — 20 days ago

Doug's Vineyard-Romsey Pinot Noir 2018

Wow, this is a big pinot with a marvellous tannin.
Bright and quiet vibrant.
There's leather, cinnamon, forest floor, musk.
White pepper, very floral, a blueberry with raspberries around. The green balsamic side is a delicate Thai mint rather than a straightforward eucalyptus. Tobacco leaves and more notes given by the very present oak component.
I trust this wine will find a better harmony on the sweet side in a while, perhaps when the tannin will soften.
However this is very different vest from the 19s and the 17s., more complex already and even though I believe this wine will age gracefully for a bit I find it already on a secondary stage compared to the formers. I am very fascinated, it reminded of a Vosne from Dom. Laurent.
Long after taste, excellent!

If you haven't tried it yet I highly recommend it. To me he is in that little group of great young producer like Sami-Odi or Lucy Margaux. Plenty of character and flavour. 🙏

Dixons Creek Reserve Release Syrah 2010

As per previous notes. This is really stalky even though its 60% whole bunch. Just medium weight but ultra savoury and resinous - hard to pick a fruit descriptor. Barb and I liked this wine very much but lovers of big Barossa Reds would differ I think. To be honest in a blind tasting it would be difficult to pick this as an Aussie Shiraz. — 7 days ago
