Notes From the Winemaker:
As it matures in cask, Tawny Port gradually loses the deep red 'ruby' colour of youth and takes on the seductive amber hue known as 'tawny'. At the same time the wine becomes progressively smoother and mellower, its aromas gaining in richness and complexity.

The fruit has mellowed further in the 20 Year Old.

Ratings & Reviews


95 Points - Decanter:
"A candied style showing mounting richness behind scents of dried fig, caramel, toffee and cream. Multi-layered on the palate, with mouth-filling grapiness and balancing citrus."

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"A complex and full-bore tawny, with deep, intense flavors of orange cream, glazed apricot, baked peach and roasted pineapple that are balanced by concentrated chocolate and toffee notes. The bright finish is filled with spice and supported by fresh acidity. Drink now.“ - KM (10/15/2013)

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A touch darker in profile than its peers, with toasted black sesame, caramel, walnut and hazelnut cream notes backed by singed orange peel and ginseng accents. Stays focused thanks to a light bitter almond thread on the finish, giving this a slightly drier feel. Drink now. 2,050 cases made, 1,600 cases imported." — JM (Jun 30, 2018)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The NV 20 Year Old Tawny was bottled with a bar top cork in 2013. It comes in at 111.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. A big mouthful, this is a 20 that first coats the palate and then ends with silky texture and concentrated flavor. Very graceful, it is not as impressive in terms of mid-palate density, but it is more than respectable. It shows fine complexity, appropriate to its age category. The finish seals the deal, more lingering and gripping than I expected from the first taste. It is another delicious Tawny from the Taylor Fladgate group this issue, so dig in." - Mark Squires (Dec 30, 2015)
