Tawny ports are wines usually made from red grapes that are aged in oak barrels exposing them to gradual oxidation and evaporation. As a result of this oxidation, they mellow to a golden-brown color. The exposure to oxygen imparts “nutty” flavors to the wine, which is blended to match the house style. They are sweet or medium dry and typically consumed as a dessert wine, but can also pair with a main course.
When a port is described as tawny, without an indication of age, it is a basic blend of wood-aged port that has spent time in oak barrels, typically at least three years. The flavor profile includes caramel and peanut brittle, apricot, plum, raisin and walnut
