My appreciation for port began when I found a bottle of 1972 Dow's, deemed past it and priced accordingly. The dried fruit and slightly medicinal character had me hooked. This wine, bottled for The Society by the Fladgate group, owners of Fonseca and Taylor's, has an average of 10 years' cask aging. It is brick red with a nose of sweet caramel, dried fruits, figs and dates. On the palate, the tannins are soft with a sweet nutty character backed by a richness of fruit.
Tawny ports are sold ready to drink and do not require decanting. Try this wine with chocolate desserts or the cheese board (especially creamy blue or good Cheddar). It works equally well on quiet fireside evenings or try this wine chilled on a summer's evening as a delicious aperitif!
