Color: light brown with hints of orange. Flavour: very balanced with flavors of dried fruit, cinnamon and a certain floral note. Well defined aromas of wood, resulting from ageing in very old oak. On the palate light coffee beans. Nice lingering finish.

The 10 Year Old Tawny Port, bottled in 2015 with 111 grams per liter of residual sugar, is a blend of Touriga Franca (25%), Tinta Roriz (25%), Touriga Nacional (5%), Tinta Barroca (20%), Tinto Cão (5%) and miscellaneous "others," aged in 650-liter casks for about 12 years. This is solid and weighty for its category--Oscar Quevedo said that his tawnies are always sourced from Douro Superior, lending them a bit more concentration and requiring a bit more aging. It is not showing the highest complexity level, however, notwithstanding the 12 years in cask, but there is plenty of spice and flavor on the finish. This is lively and appealing, lacking only a little complexity--but that is not primarily what you're going to get at the 10 Year level anyway. This is a pleasure to drink.

Deep, almost black in color, it has a few flecks of gold to show the wood aging. Aged in big barrels, it has kept considerable fruitiness and fragrant acidity. It's sweet at the end.
