Fonseca 10 Year Old Aged Tawny Port NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalThe Fonseca 10 Year Old comes by its tawny colour naturally, spending ten years ageing in Portuguese pipes. These ten years in casks sculpts its spicy tea and walnut nose with pungent rancio, cedar, and cherry notes. The front end is mellow with spiced fruitcake, walnuts, golden raisin compote and black tea. A smooth, silky, extended finish that persists for minutes. Youthful, but ready to drink.Tasted: 05 November 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.99 BCLS AB 40.00 private wine shops QC 34.75 SAQ Producer: Fonseca GuimaraensDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
