Deep amber colour with high intense nose.
Positives: Its been a long time since I tasted such a beautiful complex & yet smooth Colheita. Plums, raisins, dates, nuts (macadamia, almonds & pecan), sandalwood, good acidity with a long finish.
Interesting Point: Tawnies are usually a minimum of 7 years in oak cask before bottling. This one spent 13 years.
Drink now & pair it with dark chocolates with almonds.
Tasted: 20 May 12
Top Pick. Score: 9.5/10, Value: 9.5/20, Total: 19/20
Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 5

Reaffirms my faith in Tawny after a few disappointing tries.
A touch hot in the finish, otherwise no beefs.
Will grab another since I will probably sip this away before Christmas.
Revisit...still loving it!
