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

"There's good intensity here, with a racy hazelnut edge alongside the core of singed walnut, sesame, toffee and cinnamon notes. Offers a focused, dry edge through the finish. Drink now. 13,400 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.
