Wine Review: This dark orange colored Vintage Tawny Port wine opens with an attractive rum cake and walnut bouquet with a hint of prune. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, pleasantly sweet, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty walnut and raisin blend with notes of rum cake. The finish is semi-dry to sweet and nicely hides its 20% alcohol. I would pair this yummy port with a large slice of pecan pie. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: This is a wine of exceptional quality and elegance, a Casa Burmester classic that is made from a single harvest - a "Vintage Tawny" - aged in small 550-litre oak barrels in our Vila Nova de Gaia Cellars. It is bottled, at the very least, after seven years and in accordance with demand.
