Subject: Question about holding Tawny Ports
View Parent message
An online wine retailer for whom I have considerable respect is advertising Warre's 20 Year Otima Tawny Port bottled in late 2004, which he says "can be enjoyed today or can be held for a number of years." How about that "number of years"? I've always been under the impression that it's not a good idea to hold onto tawnies more than about two years. (I know Colheitas are more durable, and some people claim Colheitas can even improve with age, but the issue here isn't Colheitas.) So what's your experience. How long do you hold your Tawnies -- unopened, of course.
