RCV Royal Oporto 40 Year Tawny Port

This magnificent 40 Year Tawny Port is one of the oldest ports made from grapes at Portugal’s family-owned Real Companhia Velha estates. Considered one of the estate’s finest treasures, the port has been consistently blended by many generations of cellar masters.

Intense and unctuous, featuring an array of vibrant ripe citrus, dried fig, toffee and wild herb flavors, accented by notes of mocha and cocoa powder. Spiced cherry and cream fill in midpalate, with a bright finish of orange peel and caramel. (K.M. Wine Spectator, Oct 15, 2013)
