IMAGINE THAT, A 3.0L (DOUBLE MAGNUM) OF PORT!! GOOD DRINKING!!

"Redolent of dried citrus, glazed apricot and honey cream notes, flecked with hints of tarragon. The finish of toffee displays an intense spiciness, lingering with caramel nuances. Balanced and refined. Drink now. 8,300 cases imported." (WS)

"The non-vintage Otima 10-Year Old Tawny Port reveals a medium ruby/amber/garnet color, loads of kirsch and cedar intermixed with a touch of brown sugar in the nose, rich, full-bodied flavors, a burgeoning complexity and big aromatics. This is a full-bodied, silky smooth Tawny Port that should age easily for 8-10+ years.

The Warre's-Symington reputation is, of course, based on their ports. These two inexpensive offerings are well-worth their modest prices." (WA)

"This recent launch from Warre’s is delicious. It’s a fruity tawny, with delicious acidity and touches of bitter orange and chocolate. Classically balanced and fresh." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Matured for 10 years in seasoned oak barrels, Otima is a smooth and luscious wine with enticing notes of dried fruits in perfect balance with the youthful freshness of its rich, spicy fruit flavours. Versatile and delicious, Otima is a year-round Port, irresistible served lightly chilled as an aperitif, or after a meal with desserts, cheese, or indeed, on its own.
