Wine Wednesday: Otima 10-Year Tawny Port

Much more than a dark, brooding, after-dinner drink.



If you tend to think of port only as a dark, brooding, after-dinner drink, think again. Warre's Otima 10-Year Old Tawny Port ($24.99)  has a lighter structure than traditional port and is refreshing and light on the palate. It's a great winter warmer, but also a style of port that can be enjoyed in warmer weather.

Made from a blend of grapes from Portugal's Douro Valley, Otima has aromas of walnuts and dried fruits, with hints of ginger, clove, mandarin orange and caramel. Serve it slightly chilled with dessert, dried fruit or a nice hunk of stinky blue cheese.
