It was a good product, well-liked by a lot of people. There seems to be no similar Tawny Port in the Symington line (or any other that I have found).

... nimrod carries a not so enviable meaning. More importantly, however, Nimrod inhabits a very niche spot in the IVDP categorization of wines (a long topic unto itself). Registered as a Reserve Tawny, it is a wine that must have a minimum of 7 years barrel ageing (as opposed to a standard Tawny that only requires 3 years ageing). If someone is not aware of this very important difference and the profoundly better wine you end up with as a result, the price differential would put a wine like Nimrod at a big disadvantage....

Just like Noval Nacional or Vinha Velha from Taylor. Something that you are very proud of and could make a unique bottling. Is there such a thing maybe laying down already in the cellars? :)

Of course, this may take into account a small amount that was originally not intended for sale, but has since made it's way onto the market.

I keep looking for Otima 20, but the Ann Arbor, MI area isn't exactly a hotbed of Port consumption like the Seattle area. Nimrod sold for $30-32 in most places around here. The only ports that seem similar are now in the $40+ range. Perhaps Nimrod was underpriced.
Fortunately, I still have two cases of Nimrod which I am drinking up before they "expire".

I would love to see the Symington's sponsor a sports team, perhaps a UCI cycling team to give awareness to your brands. The audience is within your target crowd I think. Since the teams are named after the sponsors, you'll get plenty of talk.
Just love your dry wines too. Altano is my favorite QPR wine I can think of.
