Another magnificent and finely-balanced tawny of outstanding richness and complexity. The additional ten years of aging produces a fine balance between the rich, raisiny fruit and the nutty, honeyed finish - a taste to linger over. This rare port is traditionally enjoyed as a dessert wine or at the end of the meal.
Taste: 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 Pairing: Pairs well with figs, almonds, pecan pie, desserts made with coffee or caramel, and crème brûlée. It can be appreciated at the end of the meal with walnuts or dried fruit, and it can be served cool in the summer.
If I were you, I'd consider logging off social media tonight. After all, Double Dog nights can get unpredictable...and the internet is forever. With an ABV over 12%, this wild, untamed Double IPA is seductively full-bodied, with a deep red color and subdued malty sweetness. Dried-fruit aromatics make it an ideal companion to hard cheeses that you'll forget you ate in the morning. As world famous artist Ralph Steadman put it so succinctly, Double Dog is, "For that night. That other goddamn night."
