Quinta de Noval 10 Year Tawny Port

This 10-year tawny port was paired with a superb banana pudding from South Kitchen. One taster commented that it was an ideal match, the best of the night. I can't help thinking that almost any food (sweet, cheese, nuts) would go well with this tawny. And almost any dessert wine would go well with this banana pudding, which somehow had more deep, complex flavors than any pudding I have ever had.

The color, of course, is tawny, clear and beautiful. And the bouquet is as complex and inviting as can be expected from a 10-year (or even 20-year) tawny. Fresh as well as dried fruit--figs, dates, apricots along with nuts and orange zest. Long the wine and to the meal.
