Wine Tasting Notes
An intense, deeply flavored Porto Tawny 40 Years Old, with a massive bouquet suggesting vanilla, oak and honey, and a mouthful of very complex flavors 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.
Recently spent 2 day in Gaia tasting over 60 aged Port wines. This was the gold standard and had been for me for over 20 years of tasting Port. The Sandeman 40 has a complex taste and wonderful finish of flavors that does not disappoint.
