I want to share with you a new, must-have Port that everyone will love. Legendary producer Warre’s has reinvented the notion of what Port can be with the versatile Otima label. I am drinking the 20 year Tawny and it is stunning with a youthful freshness, vibrant copper color, rich fruit and the perfect balance of acidity for food. Aged in oak, complex flavors of maple, caramel, apricot, cherry and walnuts emerge. I poured some in a cast-iron skillet with caramelizing onions to top a burger. Amazing. Pair with more Port. Not many wines work with soup – this does. Lighter and elegant in style, try it with anything savory. Warre’s Otima 20 Year Tawny Porto. Look for this or similar items at Edina Liquor or France 44.
