Jonesy Old Tawny Port - Wow!

StriperGuy | Feb 6, 2006 02:28 PM

Bought a few bottles of this based on an e-mail from my wine guy and the Robert Parker 93 score.

It is not a true Portugese port in that it is from Australia.

But, all I can say is holey cow it is excellent. For my taste it is almost like a cross between a tawny port and a Pedro Ximenez sherry. Very rich, unctuous, and complex. It is quite sweet. Leather, citrus, raisins, a touch of smoke, honey, and perhaps a hint of something tropical. You could definitely put it on vanilla ice cream.

Typical price is $8.99 to $9.99.

I would gladly pay $25 or more for it.

One of the best dessert wine values I have had in years.

Seen it at numerous wine places in the Boston area.
