NV Porto Cruz 20 Yr Old Tawny

Post by DRT » 11:25 Sat 13 Oct 2007

Served in the Porto Cruz restaurant on the north bank of the Douro directly opposite the Calem lodge in VNG. Consumed on a day out with some portheads on 30 Sep 07 reviewed here.

The bottle was the most expensive on the restaurant price list at 30 Euro :shock:

My TN from the day says "drinkable" - my memory of it is that it was light in colour and mouthfeel and was a perfectly servicable tawny, although not of the quality that one would expect from a 20 yr old. At the price it was hard to find a fault with it.

An acceptable and entertaining start to a very good day out
