WARRE"S Otima 10 year old 2004 Tawny Port, $19.99-$25.99, 91 points, began a deep amber color, with a bright rich aroma of caramel and bourbon. Full-bodied compared with unfortified wines, but as I'm new to Port, I'm told this is a lighter port.
Flavors of raisins, apricots, and caramel were pleasing, and carried long into the finish with some spice, wood, and a typical 20% alcohol.
Paired well with my favorite pie (pecan).
This is my first Port, but hopefully I'll get a chance to taste many more.
