"A lovely, high-pitched style, with a honeysuckle note out front, followed quickly by golden raisin, persimmon, glazed peach, heather and white ginger flavors. Light caramel details fill in through the finish, lending a sweet component while leaving the brightness intact. Drink now. 320 cases made. –JM"

"Dark raisin and dried apricot flavors manifest on this immensely dark, old goldhued wine. Enormous concentration, as with the initially, almost painful acidity that comes through the spirit. This is an old wine, no question, but not too old, one to be savored in sips with all the flavors working at high intensity."
"Specially selected Portos are chosen for ageing in wooden casks where gradual exposure to air concentrates the flavours and transforms the rich ruby colour to amber, creating the rare and delicious Sandeman Porto Tawny 40 Years Old. The ageing process intensifies the fruit creating the complex flavours characteristic of Tawny Porto. A perfect Porto to end any meal and an inspiration for good conversation.
An intense, deeply flavoured Porto Tawny 40 Years Old, with a massive bouquet suggesting vanilla, oak and honey, and a mouthful of very complex flavours of dried fruits, spices, and nuts. As the wine unfolds smoothly and develops in the mouth, one discovers a superb balance of wood ageing and vibrancy, characteristic of Sandeman Tawny Portos." - Winery
