Available for:
Founded in 1670, Warre & Co. is the oldest and one of the most highly esteemed port shipping firms in the world. William Warre joined as partner in 1729, and the company became known as Warre. This 10 Year Old Tawny has a light delicate palate that combines gentle sweetness with clean flavors. Aged all of its life in wooden casks, it has a nose of dried fruits and walnuts, and flavors of nuts highlighted by mature fruit: well-balanced and with a long, fresh finish. Needs no decanting and can be served slightly chilled as an accompaniment to cheese, nuts or dried fruit after a meal.

The NV Otima 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2014. Tasted with a group of other "10s," this Otima was immediately recognizable simply because of its lighter color. Nothing else was close to it, including others that were more on the light side. This is a Tawny that's intended to be a bit different, lighter and more elegant, easier to drink. You'll either gravitate to its style or you won't. While it is not always going to be everyone's first choice in long-aged Tawnies, it succeeds well on its own terms and in its own context. Unctuous in texture, very sweet and remarkably elegant, this is most enhanced by its lovely and lingering finish, chock full of flavor. Never even a little bit heavy, and with the power, aromatics and concentration well constrained also, this should be an easy drinker that is universally popular. Barring cork failures, it will hold fine for a couple of decades or more, but it's not intended to be aged. Note that this has a bar top cork. The price references a 500-milliliter bottle.
