2004 Colheita TawnyPort - 750 ml
Dark and rich, with dried figs and candied walnuts and a hint of cinnamon. A Tawny Port blended entirely of grapes from the 2004 harvest.
The 2004 harvest is the earliest on record for Ficklin, and began on August 7th, just shy of three weeks early. Crop yields were low, and there was considerable concentration of flavor in the resulting wines. The typical jammy flavors of the Tinta Madeira grape are transformed into wonderful and complex dried fruit characteristics in both the aroma and the mouth. The extended barrel age refines and softens the spicy fullness of the Touriga, and the blend becomes a wonderful symphony of traditional Tawny Port flavors.
