Ficklin Madera Tawny Port 10 Year Old

Winemaker's Notes:

Ficklin's Aged 10 Years Tawny Port is a true, aged Tawny Port. This wine has spent at least a full 10 years in small American oak cooperage. It is a wine that is currently showing the full potential and character of a fine wood-aged Port. Of the four Portuguese varieties that Ficklin Vineyards uses to create it's premium California Ports, only two are featured in this wine, the Tinta Madeira, and the Touriga.

Ficklin Vineyards is primarily a family operation with Peter Ficklin guiding the family's third generation in the production of its highly regarded California port-style wines. Peter once described his duties at the winery with the following comment: "I'm the president, the winemaker and the chief bottle washer as well." The decision to keep the operation small is an important one, as each step receives the personal attention of the family. His appointment as president in 1991 followed the retirement of his mother, Jean Ficklin. As winemaker at Ficklin Vineyards, a position he was promoted to upon the retirement of his father David Ficklin in 1983, Peter has revived the vintage port program. In over 50 years of Ficklin's history, only eight vintage ports have been released, the most recent being the 1991 Vintage Port, that was released in 2002. From every vintage bottling, Peter holds at least 100 cases for additional cellaring and re-release at a later date. Peter received his Bachelor of Science degree in enology from the University of California at Davis in 1978. Read less
