The NV CNK Very Old Tawny Port is a tribute to Cristiano Nicolau Kopke and the 380th anniversary of Kopke (a rather odd anniversary—375, 350, 400—but 380?). The anniversary date aside, it comes in with 171 grams of residual sugar. The average age of the blend is 91 to 92 years, with wines from the 1920s, 1930s and older. Beautifully done, this certainly has very mature nuances, with plenty of molasses and hints of treacle here and there to go with the caramel and chocolate, but the vibrant acidity makes it seem young and alive. It just lifts the fruit and makes this sing. The finish is powerful, intense and very long. There's a lot of bite there. I don't expect Very Old Tawnies to be very young, and this isn't, but it does everything I want in a Very Old Tawny. There were 380 bottles (the anniversary) produced. This has a bar-top cork. It will last for decades if the cork stays intact, but it is made for drinking today. Tawnies don't require bottle aging.
