Portugal - All Wines Including Oporto Reviews

Sandeman  40 Year Old Tawny Porto Douro
97 points
$139.99
Deep reddish copper color. Enticing aromas of sautéed almond, pepper, buttery salt caramel and dried citrus peels with a silky, fruity medium-to-full body and a very long, and warming orange-kiwi marmalade, toffeed nut, suede and spiced caramel baked apple accented finish. Superb complexity, depth and style, in particular the lush Sherry-like notes.

Sandeman  30 Year Old Tawny Porto Douro
95 points
$85.99
Copper color. Aromas of caramelized fruits and nuts, dark chocolate, leather, pepper dust and faint sandalwood with a silky, fruity medium-to-full body and a tangy spiced craisin, caramelized tangerine and almond accented finish. A zesty, flavorful tawny that will be great on it’s own and awesome in crafty, top-shelf cocktails.
