“For The Love Of Port” 2010 Awards: Best Tawny Port (94/100)

The sheer balance of this Port was remarkable and although I tasted it at the Quinta, that time, it was just a glass pour. Enjoying the bottle now over the course of five days, I had the chance to really evaluate its delivery. Simply put, it has raised the bar by which I have measured all 10 year old Tawnies up until now. More in the nutty realm than citrus in its profile, both aromatically and on the palate, this is one fine Tawny 10. Rich and ponderous, it continued to improve over several days, not just gaining weight but becoming even more complex in its stratified mid-palate. The dry style with delectable hazelnuts, toffee and acid-rich focus, continued to dazzle. This is the clear winner in a category that rarely has an offering that captivates my palate like this Romaneira did and it could have fooled me into believing it was a 20 year old Tawny had I not known better. 94 points"
