Light amber and tawny color, showing mature raisiny fruit aromas with hints of honey and caramel. A rich and nutty palate, with wonderful balance. A clean crisp finish and a
soft lingering aftertaste make this an unforgettable Port on any occasion.

Food Pairing and Serving: Dow's 20 Year Old Tawny Port pairs extremely well with vanilla ice cream or crème brûlée and strong cheeses like aged cheddar. Serve
slightly chilled to appreciate the full complexity and sensuous pleasure of this wine.

This is a wonderful wood-aged, mature Port full of the classic old gold flavors and intense acidity over a dry texture that is a signature of this producer. The wine is impressive, balanced and ready to drink.

Juicy and lively in feel, with flan, date, persimmon and caramel notes weaving around each other, backed by a racy bitter almond accent on the finish. There's lots to like here. Drink now. 8,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port is a field blend coming in with 126 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It was bottled in 2018. Dry and stern-this is the style you'd expect from the comments in the accompanying producer note-this shows off some wood, plus very fine concentration and power for the level. This is not always an open and friendly 20, though. The 30, actually, seems far livelier and more expressive (although woodier and more mature, to be sure). This 20 is one that intends to grab your palate and not let go. Some sweetness and a touch of spice around the edges redeem it. That counters the power and woody demeanor. It drank particularly well a couple of days later. On many levels, this is impressive for its age. It works well overall in its style.
