Warre's "Otima" 20-year-old Tawny Port (500ml)
Fresh, with plenty of vibrant acidity behind the cocoa, vanilla and dried apricot flavors. Spicy and creamy notes linger on the long, broad finish. Drink now.
Warre's seems to have found just the right formula for its tawnys. The 10-Year Old Otima is a fine wine, and so is this Otima 20. It has aromas of almonds, layers of acidity and sweetness, the flavor of bitter oranges, and a round, ripe aftertaste.
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!
