Warre's "Otima" 20-year-old Tawny Port (500ml)

SKU #1012121 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 0 This is a smooth and richly ripe wine. It has a dry character that brings out the wood aging and the dried fruit flavors that are well in balance. There is a tang of spirit that gives a lift to the wine. Acidity and a dry aftertaste complete an impressive tawny. (RV)  (12/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Very plush, with a buttery essence to the dried white fruit and nutty flavors. Elegantly spiced, featuring a long finish of dried ginger, sandalwood and shortbread. (KM)  (9/2015)

91 points Wine & Spirits

 Warmer and spicier than the Otima 10 (also recommended here), this has complex scents of roots and curry to balance its red fruit. The structure is firm and lean, the flavors energized by the alcohol, which drives it through a peppery finish. Pour it with a savory almond tart.  (12/2015)

K&L Notes

Whether you opt to try this fine Tawny chilled before dinner as an aperitif accompanied by something savory, or after dinner with something sweet, this lightly sweet 20-year Tawny has a fascinating nutty quality that enlivens the palate rather than satiates it with undue opulence. It's superb with spiced nuts or aged hard cheeses. Once opened, have no fear, this will hold up remarkably well in the fridge over many weeks!

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
Sub-Region:

Port

- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
