Wine SpectatorJuicy and nicely compact, with a core of cinnamon, raisin, dried cherry and plum cobbler notes that is flattering but stays fresh enough through the finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastThe wine is soft with caramel and vanilla flavors and ripe sultana tastes that give a rounded character. It has enough fresh acidity to balance the sweetness. The aftertaste has spice, wood and a crisp berry taste.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Reserve Tawny Port was bottled in August 2015 with a bar top cork. It comes in at 123 grams per liter of residual sugar. Sugary on the finish, it is quite delectable and very focused. Emphasizing the sweetness and easy drinking, it doesn't have a lot of depth or power, but there's more than enough for the level. The alcohol does burble up here and there, but overall it drinks well in an accessible style. There is no reason this can't hold if you must, but it is not designed to be held and it doesn't need to age. Dive in.
