20 Years Old Tawny port is a golden-colored tawny, denoting a wine of considerable age. Very nutty and aromatic on the nose, it is a wine that has reached a high degree of smoothness through many years in wood. While very mellow and concentrated on the palate, it shows plenty of fruit with a long, rich finish. This wine is notably sweeter than the 10-year-old Tawny, and much more concentrated, yet displays the characteristic Cockburn's style of freshness and grip. The 20 Years Old Tawny is wonderful with rich cream-based desserts, such as creme brulee, cheesecake or flan. It also makes a special treat when served alone, slightly chilled, perhaps with almonds or pecans.

Wine SpectatorWonderful aromas of butterscotch, toffee and honey, with just a hint of fruit. Full-bodied, with very sweet fruit and a long caramel and nutty finish. Textbook. Cockburn is the business in old tawnies right now. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastNutty and caramelly, this is a great example of aged tawny. Roasted walnut aromas waft from the glass, followed by flavors reminiscent of maple syrup carried across the palate on creamy-soft waves of richness
