Real Companhia Velha Fundador Tawny Wine Review by Billy
nose: warm currant and tobacco
palate: smooth, some tar on the edges, lacking complexity
overall: Meh. Not a big Tawny. It lacks. It mistakes barrenness for elegance and simplicity for sublimeness. Not my favorite. It has more moderate red wine feel/characteristics than port characteristics.
Still, I cannot complain. After all, I'm sampling Port in Portugal. I'm in Lisbon on business and even this is a treat. Raise a glass to Portugal!
