"Even more perfumed and compelling than the Grandfather is the profound Great Grandfather Tawny Liqueur. From a much older solera, it undeniably ratchets up the level of quality. This brilliant fortified is remarkably light on its feet given its massive richness. Thank good winemaking, great natural extract, and zesty acidity for keeping this wine fresh in spite of its huge residual sweetness and power."

Old fortified wines like this are a national treasure. It's pricey but has few peers. It's rich and complex, yet not heavy nor cloying. Raisiny fruits, toasty, nutty, barrel-aged inputs, immense length, tangy acidity and great presence.
