Light amber and tawny colour, showing mature raisiny fruit aromas with hints of honey and caramel. Dow’s Twenty Years Old Tawny has a rich and nutty palate, with wonderful balance. A clean crisp finish and a soft lingering aftertaste make this an unforgettable Port on any occasion.

Reviews:

"This doesn't taste 20 years old, but it's a good soft, aged Port, with plum, toffee and cedar character. Drink now. 300 cases imported. –JS" -Rated 86, Wine Spectator

"Soft in texture yet mouthcoating in its intensity, this is a honeyed, nutty wine filled with dried fruit, toffee and almond butter aromas and flavors. Like all tawnies, it won’t improve with bottle age, so drink this while your young vintage Ports hog the cellar space. — W.E. (3/1/2008)" -Rated 91, Wine Enthusiast

"Complex aromas of toffee, roasted nuts, lead pencil, orange peel and caraway seed. Intensely flavored fruit is silky but nicely delineated; offers a fresh flavor of orange peel. Not at all thick, but brisk and vibrant. Finishes clean and long, with hints of smoked nuts and marzipan. This has far stronger material than the 10-Year-Old, which seemed clumsy and dull in comparison. " -Rated 90, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
