Bottled in 2015, T-Cork. Opened for 2 hours before first taste, then several days following. Burnt orange hue with the depth and transition to light orange akin to a Rothko painting; flat yellow rim--just looks lovely and inviting. Aromas of burnt sugar and caramel; a full bouquet that fills the room. Moderate weight and presents very well. Butterscotch, caramel and Crème Brule with touches of toasted sweet nuts-pralines or pecan pie where the pecans are slightly roasted. Occasionally pick up hints of citrus zest that lies under the caramel. The depth and nuances of flavor is outstanding, the finish lingers for a long time. Such a pleasing port. No real change between the two tastings.
At 48 hours was still good but has lost a bit of complexity.
- Taken outside in natural light. Not a port glass, but unbreakable and does the job well.
