Reviews and Ratings

Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Light ruby in colour with caramel on the nose. Full mouth flavour of fig and walnuts with a slightly orangey finish. Would pair nicely with dark chocolate or blue cheeses.

Tasted November 17, 2017
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This Port would be an excellent finish to any special dinner. Aromas of apricot, dried fruit and nuts are followed by flavours of fig, caramel and orange. Great paired with a cheese board for dessert. Tasted November 19, 2017.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Medium brick with caramel hue. The nose smells of stewed plums, figs, and caramel.
The wine has a medium, silky body. It tastes of fig jam, dried fruits, cashew nuts, and oxidized prune juice. A good acidity carries the caramel sweetness to a long finish. Score 91.
(S.Segard, reviewed Nov. 19, 2017)
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Silky smooth port with pleasing notes of honey, dried apricot and fig. Pleasing acidity, well structured. Long sweet, finish with notes of toffee and ginger. Will definitely stock up for Christmas season. Pair with chocolate truffles Tasted Nov 2017
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Bright tawny colour, presenting caramel and coffee aromas. The rich palate fills your mouth with caramel, orange rind, dried fruit and coffee. Serve slightly chilled, with cashews, Gorgonzola cheese or with crème brûlée.
Tasted Nov. 2017
Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful burnt garnet colour in the glass, lots of fig and baked apricot aromas carry through to a lengthy caramelized finish. Delicious dessert wine, or pair with blue vein cheeses.
Tasted March 2017.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful garnet-coloured ten-year-old tawny port with succulent aromas of dark fruit, dried apricots, spiced nuts and caramel. Full-bodied with a lingering dark fruit and sweet spice finish. Pair with pungent cheese. Tasted 2019.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Rich tawny colour, with an excellent nose of nuts and hints of mature fruit. On the palate light and delicate, beautifully rounded, with hints of dried fruits, and a long elegant finish.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Couleur tannée riche avec un excellent nez de noix et des touches de fruits murs. Il est léger et délicat au palais, bien rond avec des touches de fruits secs et un fini long et élégant.
