Succulent and smooth, this tremendously complex tawny is layered with caramel, walnut, coffee, almond and orange peel flavors, long, elegant and spicy in the mouth. All this and wow, what a price -- this wine could double as a Best Buy.
Wine Tasting Notes
Tawny red with amber hues and dark red tints. The nose offers rich fruit nuances, ripe fruit lifts supports by coffee, chocolate, raisins and nutty aromas. This classic Australian Tawny exhibits a smooth palate and mellow with good length and a dry finish. Classic rancio characters are also evident.
Whiskers Blake Port was especially selected from premium aged tawny ports. All components were matured in small oak casks for an average of 10 years. The wines were blended to attain the classic characters and qualities of an outstanding Tawny Port.
I love this tawny port because its full bodied, and one of the best ports I've tasted at a reasonable price. It goes great with dark chocolate and a great grilled pork chop. It just has an awesome taste to me.
This is one of my all time favorite ports. I have visited many winery's and have never found a port with such a smooth taste as the Whiskers Blake tawny port, it's my weakness when it comes too this type of desert wine.
