Details
"This shows what you get with increasing age: the superb concentration of flavor, the long, intense finishes and the complex medley of flavors that old Tawnies deliver effortlessly. That, to me, is what makes them worth the extra bucks. If some of the youngsters lean more to caramel, this adds more molasses with a touch of Brandy in the background. The concentrated flavors linger more or less endlessly, driven into the palate by the wine's power and acidity. You can smell and taste this for a long time. The graceful mid-palate is deceptively friendly at first. It sure does grip the palate at the end, though, finishing with juicy bursts of fruit and sugar. Over several days, it acquired a bit more harmony and shed a touch of aggression. You can't go wrong, really." 96 points Mark Squires Wine Advocate

"A light amber color, with zesty, fresh flavors of dried citrus, ginger and glazed apricot which lengthen out midpalate. White pepper and plenty of spice details show on the finish." 94 points Wine Spectator

Kopke is one of the oldest Port houses in the Douro dating back to 1638 and offers an amazing selection of aged tawny ports. It's a unique opportunity to experience history in a bottle.
