My wife enjoys drinking a glass of Port in the evening, and she recently purchased a bottle of Croft NV Tawny Port. I decided to help myself to a glass, and if I am going to drink Port, I do prefer the Tawny version over a Ruby Port. A tawny Port gets its name from the brownish color that is found in the wine. Tawny Port is produced using red grape varieties, and it gets the brownish color from wooden barrels, and a gradual exposure to oxygen. A non-vintage tawny Port is usually a blend of different wines that are 3-4 years in age. It is fortified with Brandy, and is classified as a fortified wine, or some refer to them as dessert wines. The Croft NV Tawny Port had aromas and flavors of red berries, dried black fruit, with a nutty finish. This Port was smooth, with a nice mellow finish, and not bad for a wine priced under $10.
