Pop and pour, faded honey orange color. No real notes but an easy drinker. For $17 for a 375 I would buy again for casual drinking.

90 Points

Portal's 10 Yr Old Aged White Port is a lovely easy-drinker. Pale caramel color with a candied nose, good caramel, toasted marshmallow, and oak flavor. Fruit is nondescript but present, the tail is long, and the alcohol is balanced against the sugars to avoid the long burn. 92.

Tasted during the Vesuvio vertical -- preferred this to much of the vesuvio VP, and fear I'm turning tawny.
