Bright saturated ruby. Vibrant pure aromas of blackberry violet and bitter chocolate. Juicy minerally precise and penetrating but quite primary and unevolved today. Shows strong but integrated acidity and a tight kernel of fruit. Best today on the slow-building rising aristocratic finish. But today the wine s tannins are less obvious than its acids. This seems distinctly less ripe and chewy than the great 2000 Taylor s but it s still extremely unevolved. Latour-like in its structure and reserve. Stephen Tanzers IWC.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2003 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port improved each time I raised it to my nose or mouth. It displays a black color and a salty, graphite-laced nose packed with sweet black fruits that is reminiscent of a stellar vintage of Chateau Latour. With air, notes of molasses, burnt sugar, spices, and jammy plums emanate from the glass. Full-bodied, hugely dense, immensely rich, as well as thick, this behemoth is also amazingly balanced and harmonious. Raisins, molasses, licorice, black cherries, plums, and a distinctive note of violets are found in its complex, seamless character. Its interminable finish reveals additional notes of chocolate, kirsch, red as well as black currants, dark cherries, and rose blossoms. Armed with exceptional power, depth, and purity, this Taylor will proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the finest ever crafted by the Fladgate Partnership...98+" WA 10/05
