Pretty smooth, port wine at a nice price point. Had purchased a vintage Taylor Fladgate and was curious about this lower price point port. Was not disappointed and will likely buy again.

Das intensive Bouquet ist vielschichtig, komplex und ausgewogen. Es verheisst ein besonderes Trinkvergnügen! Dieser Jahrgangsportwein, der erst nach einigen Jahren der Fassreife auf die Flasche gefüllt wird – auf englisch «late bottled vintage» –, hält was er in der Nase ankündigt. Der Porto LBV entführt auf eine sensorische Abenteuerreise: vielfältige Aromen von reifen, gedörrten, eingemachten und gekochten Früchten sowie eine Palette von exotischen Gewürzen offenbaren sich im Gaumen und im beinahe unendlichen Finale, das so typisch für einen Klasse-Portwein ist. Körper und Gehalt einerseits sowie Harmonie und Eleganz andererseits sind die Qualitätsfaktoren, auf denen dieser bedeutende Porto basiert.

A leathery and molasses nose. Soft and warm on the palate, with notes of black fruit. There is really nice texture in this port which yields a smooth long finish.

Bright, deep ruby. Superripe but youthfully clenched aromas of kirsch, blueberry, black licorice, smoke and minerals. Densely packed, suave and thick; has the texture of liquid velvet but urgent minerality gives it outstanding energy and a light touch. Best today on the slow-building, firmly tannic, spicy, palate-staining finish, which shows more grip and thrust than the Vargellas. This gained in complexity and definition for upwards of 72 hours in the recorked bottle. The Vargellas is an outstanding site expression while this is a great blend-and likely to enjoy a slower evolution in bottle. As usual, this should be among the longest-lived wines of the vintage.

This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. Their tawnys are also among the very best, though somewhat expensive. Two bottles of the 1985 were tasted and each was different. One was compact and dull, the other beefy, rich, full-bodied, and loaded. While the better bottle clearly was outstanding, it was not as sublime or as sensational as one expects Taylor to be, and not as rich or as profound as the 1983, 1977 or 1970. Perhaps this particular port, usually one of my favorites, it going through an awkward stage. Judgment reserved.

This is a giant of a wine lurking behind fresh flowers and ripe fruit. Starts off in a friendly way, then takes hold of the palate, with intense blueberry and blackberry fruit and chewy yet fine tannins. Mouthpuckering, but impressively complex and long. Really kicks in on the finish. The best Taylor since 1994. Best after 2020.

(Barrel tasting) A classic baby Vintage Port nose of blackberry, currant and a little bit of green lemon leaf. Full-bodied and medium sweet. There's a solid core of ripe fruit and powerful tannins, with grip. The real deal.
