About

96

"Garnet color with a yellow edge. This very sweet and very old tawny Port shows fabulous density and richness, not to mention intense sweetness and depth. A little tannic yet remains polished and caressing. Long and flavorful finish of dried fruits, citrus, caramel and butterscotch as well as salted nuts. Some Portuguese flan. Drink now."

93 Mark Squires - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The NV 40 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2016 with a bar top cork and 145 grams per liter of residual sugar. This adds a bit more brandy as a nuance on the finish to the 30, reviewed this issue, but it still seems much like the 30 Year Old, surprisingly fresh and easy, beautifully balanced and on the lighter side in terms of mid-palate concentration. It is a lovely tawny on its own terms--I'm just not sure it delivers enough of an uptick to justify the price spike from the 30 (or, perhaps even the 20). On its own, though, it won't disappoint. The price references a 750 milliliter bottle."

92 Wine Enthusiast

"A wonderful blending of sweet, caramel flavors and old wood seeps into what is still a surprisingly fresh wine. It has lovely, old, gold acidity just lightly burnished with some spirit. Concentrated, yes, but still finely poised, and much less medicinal than previous examples of Kopke's 40-year old."

Product Description:

"Deep amber in colour, with a greenish rim. On the nose it is complex, with notes of dried fruits, like raisins, fig and walnut, wrapped in subtle hints of vanilla and honey. On the palate, it is dense, silky and concentrated, with impressive freshness. A powerful and particularly enduring finish." - Winery
