Taylor Fladgate Port 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"Impressive... a young, burly vintage Port. An elegant yet powerful and fruity style of young Taylor. Wonderfully floral in the nose, with loads of violets and crushed fruit. Full-bodied and very balanced. Mediumsweet, with firm and polished tannins and a long, fruity finish. Very tight and compacted... 95-100." WS, 5/30/02. Very limited. "Among the most saturated blue/purple/black-colored examples of the vintage, Taylor's 2000 tastes like a young vintage of Chateau Latour on steroids. Aromas of graphite, blackberry liqueur, creme de cassis and smoke jump from the glass. Spectacularly concentrated and enormously endowed, with sweetness allied to ripe tannin, decent acidity, and layer upon layer of fruit and extract, this is the leading candidate for the port of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040... 98." WA, issue 143.
