2012 Devil Tavern
10-Year Aged Port-Style Wine
Having aged 10 years in barrel, this wine has a complexity hard to find anywhere else. A distinct nuttiness comes from the extended aging & associated oxidation. This aging process leads to more well-integrated flavors of vanilla & caramel. Lots of prune, raisin, & date notes linger on the finish. This wine is the result of an ambitious & time-consuming undertaking. Crafting a ten-year tawny style port begins with making a wine with the composition to age that long, & then requires the patience to wait. The wine sat undisturbed in the barrel for ten years before being racked twice & bottled. Because of its composition & not being filtered, it will continue to evolve in the bottle for years to come.
