Taylors 40 year old tawny Port wine. Olive bronze in color, this is an exotic, intense old tawny with layers of penetrating aromas and flavors of caramel, burnt sugar, chocolate, toffee, nuts and toasted spice in a dense, luxuriantly textured palate which is underscored by a fine, elegant acidic backbone. A 40th birthday gift. A gift for an Anniversary or retirement. If this is special gift you can select the delivery date after you checkout.

Tasted at Taylor’s tawny seminar in London. Pale mahogany core with a tawny rim. The nose has a generous, nutty bouquet with semblances towards a Bual that ebb with time. Very fine definition, the nose opening up with time with a touch of antique furniture shop, honey, juniper berries, dried apricot and sloe. The palate has a peppery entry with touches of soy and Chinese 5-spice, expanding nicely across the mouth but maintaining focus. Its judicious oxidative elements impart potent walnut, smoke and red pepper flavours towards the mellow, understated, sumptuous finish. Wonderful. Tasted October 2010.
