Robert Park 94 Points | This rolls around the palate nicely and lingers in that classic old-tawny fashion. There is considerable grip on that flavorful finish. For all of its power and concentration, this 40 is also as lively as any of its younger siblings. While it certainly shows somewhat older, with darker flavors leaning a bit more to the molasses side of the equation, it is still bright, penetrating and focused.
It is the pick of the litter of the Sandeman tawnies this issue. To be sure, there's a steep uptick in price from the 30 to this—which might make the well-priced 30 the sweeter spot in the lineup if you want complexity—but this is easily the better wine. There were 4,800 bottles produced.
Winemaker Description | Specially selected Ports are chosen for ageing in wooden casks where gradual exposure to air concentrates the flavours and transforms the rich ruby colour to amber, creating the rare and delicious Sandeman Porto Tawny 40 Year Old. The ageing process intensifies the fruit creating the complex flavours characteristic of Tawny Port.

A perfect Port to end any meal and an inspiration for good conversation.
