Re-Review: Sandeman Tawny Port 20 Years Old (2010)


Here’s a fresh look at this tawny, last reviewed in 2008. A good, old 20 year old tawny port with a ruddy brick-red color, Sandeman’s affordable porto is an easy and accessible entry to the style. Port’s traditional raisin and prune characteristics are present, but they are considerably muted beneath wood notes, smoke, and some vegetal character — all at the expense of some of tawny’s traditional sugariness. It isn’t quite as ultimately harmonious as I might have liked, but for those looking for something a bit less sweet in an after-dinner wine, this one might do the trick. 20% alcohol by volume.
