Ferreira Tawny Port 20 Year Old Duque de Braganca NV - Port Wine 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$70 list] Always great, this is softer, less intense than in the past. But there is still great richness, and power as well as smoothness, burnt caramel blending well with the spirit, and finishing with its inimitable fresh acidity. (Nov 2007)"
92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, smooth and polished, exhibiting an array of dried apricot, pear and guava flavors that are accented by plenty of apple wood smoke notes. The lush finish surges with mineral, along with hints of peat and ginger cream. Drink now. 300 cases imported. (12/31/10)" Producer notes: "Ferreira Duque de Bragança 20 Year Old Tawny has an attractive tawny colour with coppery hues. Its intense bouquet shows the character of a well-balanced maturing through oxidation: dry fruits, spices and a hint of ripe fruit and marmalade. In the mouth it is a full-bodied, delicate, soft, velvety and lingering wine. In spite of its age it has a marked and well-balanced freshness, a consequence of the refreshing with younger wines carried out through its maturation. It is a fine, elegant and deeply lingering wine. Serving Suggestions: Served at room temperature or slightly chilled, Ferreira Duque de Bragança 20 Year Old Tawny is a delicious wine. It makes a very elegant aperitif and goes well with several rich starters, such as foie-gras or intense cheese pies, salty dumplings or seafood. It is perfect with deserts such as crème caramel, apple pie and dry fruits or even fresh peaches. It is also a great accompaniment for cured or blue cheese, and is delicious if served on its own. Aged Tawnies benefit if open some time before drinking." Producer: FerreiraCountry: PortugalRegion: PortugalRating: 93 See Also: Wine Menu, Port Wine Menu, Beer Menu
