Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Taylor Fladgate 30-Year Old Tawny

I love to have a bottle of Port always on hand, something to pull out at the end of the meal in place of, or alongside, dessert. When friends could come over in less socially distant times, it was an indulgent excuse to keep the convo flowing a little longer. Nowadays, I’ll curl up with a small glass after dinner and watch Netflix or read. It is a perfectly satisfying treat on its own, but try adding a dash to espresso. A tawny Port like Taylor Fladgate 30-Year Old Tawny has nutty, caramelly, butterscotch notes that will make your coffee sing.

Tasting Notes

With an intense amber, tawny color, the wine has opulent, voluptuous, spicy, jammy and nutty aromas with orange blossom notes and a fine oak influence coming from the long aging in cask. The full palate is very rich, with concentrated flavor and a long, mellow finish.

Food Match

Pairs well with figs, almonds and caramel. It can be served at the end of the meal with walnuts or dried fruit and it can be slightly chilled in the summer.
