91A 1950′s Christmas in a bottle of wine, this wine has flavors and aromas that will take you back to your childhood, so stock up for the holidays. This single vintage tawny port offers up flavors of roasted hazelnuts, crème brûlée, sandalwood, spices, figs, and sweet pipe tobacco. This was a Gold Medal winner at the Fifth Annual Palate Press Grand Tasting. Drink with aged cheeses or nuts. Highly Recommended. 91.
