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

SKU #1012121 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Enticing, with green tea, ginger, toasted sesame, caramel and date flavors that glide through, with finely stitched acidity and a flattering flash of sweetness. Delivers understated elegance. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (12/2015)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is indeed remarkably elegant and refreshing for a 20, dancing on the palate with light footsteps. That also means it is far better on the nose than the palate, though. It seems sunny and bright, but it doesn't show the concentration of flavor, tension on the finish or even the intense aromatics that the best 20s can. For many, it will be just what they want, something fresh and lively, but it is a bit underwhelming. That said, it certainly enlivens the palate and it is remarkably easy and fun to drink. Plus, after it was open for a few days (who says they don't change?), it began to show more of those classic, mature Tawny nuances, certainly more than were there initially. Take note, though: it is still Port, there is a lot of alcohol, even if it controls the perceptible spirit influence very well, and it will knock you on your butt if you drink too much. You'll want to do exactly that–it goes down easy and tastes great. (MS) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

Decanter

Outer quote mark Aromas of cream, coffee bean and roasted nuts, with dried fig, leather and spice on the palate. Finishes a little abruptly, but otherwise an interesting wine. (Panel Tasting) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

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!
