Dark burnt sienna color. Boozy aromas of dried cherries with orange zest, almond oil, grilled cashew and brazil nuts, and smoky tobacco with a syrupy, vibrant, sweet medium body and a hot, medium-length black pepper, soy sauce, and Madeira cake finish with medium tannins and moderate oak flavor. A nice Tawny port for cocktails and dessert recipes.

Port Tawny

Wine Glass Port.jpg
Serve in a Port Wine Glass
Tawny Port is a fortified wine named for its tawny color. It is most famous from Portugal, although the general term of tawny port is applied to any port wine with a few years of age in the cellar in wood, which alters the color from purple to tawny brown. They range from lightly sweet to medium sweet and are usually consumed upon release, as the aging has been completed at the cellars.
