Light, orange-tinted amber color, magnificent, perfumed nose with great class showing an array of dried fruits. Outstanding mature concentrated palate with full honeyed fruit, gorgeously mellowed. Simply delicious with an aftertaste that lasts and lasts. An excellent alternative to Vintage Port at less formal occasions. Will keep for some weeks after opening.

Dried cherries, plums and candied fruit with some figs on the nose. Light toffee, too. Medium-to full-bodied, very sweet and layered with dried fruit, smoked wood, caramel and hints of stems. Some dried earth and salted nuts. Very complex. Drink now.

Remarkably, this is able to show age and long cask aging, but the flavor is still here: figs and honey, balanced out with burnt caramel aged acidity and a rich (but not sweet) finish. Excellent, top quality aged tawny. Editors' Choice

Broad in feel and dark in profile, with walnut and hazelnut notes leading the way, followed by brown bread, dried fig, bitter orange, singed almond and juniper notes. A lovely flash of green tea adds sparkle and detail on the finish, but this stays reliant on its bass line throughout. Drink now. From Portugal.
Builds harmoniously in the glass, with lovely depth and layers, revealing crystallized violets, lavender, cedar, dried pear and fig, plus Madeira honeycake, with creamy praline and Bourbon vanilla to the finish. A nutty spine. Hints of nam pla and walnut extend the reach of its unctuous, honeyed palate. Lingering, caressing finish.
94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV 30 Years Tawny Port was bottled in 2013 with a bar-top cork and 125 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is smoother and more harmonious than the Dow this issue, a contrast in house styles. If the Dow's this issue often seemed stern, tight and brooding, this is sexy, sunny and lively, with a burst of sugar on the finish. It starts a little understated and certainly elegant, but it gathers strength and length on the finish. Supple on the first pour, it then adds a touch of brandy, a hit of sugar and a lot of dark chocolate on the finish—just to remind you that this is indeed an old, complex Tawny. The next day, it is beautiful, focused, well balanced and precise. The lifted fruit seems to last indefinitely on the palate. After a week or so, it was darker and more intense. As always, these hold indefinitely in the bottle, barring cork failures, but they are not really meant to be held.
93 Wine & Spirits
Fully mature, the 30-year blend offers cool spicy satisfaction. Its flavors taste of a range of fruits in marmalade, from candied orange zest to kumquats with their peels. Toasty and bright, apricot-rich, this wine’s bittersweet finish will match a savory almond tart.
