Description and Reviews:
The Quinta das Carvalhas 10 Year old Port is an outstanding aged Tawny Port and is a wonderful introduction to the category. It reveals auburn topaz reflections with a harmonious and elegant bouquet characteristic of aging in oak casks, with notes of spices, honey caramel and butterscotch. The wine is full-bodied and has a long lingering finish.
In order to enjoy this Port at its maximum splendor, it should be served at 14°C, partnering preferably with light chocolate deserts or soft cheese.

For a 10-year-old Port, this is impressively mature, showing plenty of wood-ageing flavours that have fully embraced the more youthful fruitiness. Sweet and with hints of caramel, this is a fine, ripe Port to be drunk now. — Roger Voss
Quinta das Carvalhas is one of the most emblematic and spectacular properties in the Douro valley. Written references regarding this magnificent vineyard can be traced back to 1759. Enjoying a prominent position on the left bank of the Douro river, in Pinhão, the estate covers the entire hillside facing the Douro river and occupies part of the slopes of the right bank of the tributary Torto river. Carvalhas’ old vines, are a post-phylloxera plantation, which have reached the respectful age of a century old and represent one of the richest selection of ancient indigenous Douro varieties.
