Taylor Fladgate Porto Late Bottled Vintage 2011

External Review:

Opaque, purple black colour with a narrow violet rim. Characteristically stylish and racy, with a nose of dense blackcurrant and woodland fruit overlaid with discreet herbal nuances and scents of violet and rose petals.

Dark, rich, spice and tar but not as long a finish as I was expecting. Nice but lacks power of the best LBVs. My rating 89.

Very nice nose with loads of dark fruit, on the palate that turned to blueberry for me which was great, had a board of cheese in front of me and I would have to agree that the blue cheese paired perfectly

Got this as a birthday present to myself. The lush burgundy colour it exudes is amazing, on the nose its pungent almost cognac-y scent entwined with an intense grape jam hint. It taste brilliant, thick bold tannins that indeed do come out very strong at first but after the initial sip it gives way to a more berry focused flavour profile, the sugar levels were great and ended with a long strong finish. It tasted like a moderately sweet aged Shiraz which to me was excellent, I had mine with a Lindt 85% Dark chocolate bar, perfect match.

Initially the tannins dominate, but then ripe, sweet jelly and juicy fruit shows through, giving the wine its main character. There is some firm tannin, but the wine enjoys generous sweetness.

Has berry character, but it's slightly funky, with old wood and earth notes. Medium- to full-bodied and medium sweet, with silky tannins and an earth and berry aftertaste. Drink now.

Medium-bodied and mildly tannic. Black fruits, plums, licorice and earth flavors. A youthful, aromatic nose reveals full-extracted flavors.

This is a mature, deliciously perfumed and structured wine. There is a great milk chocolate flavor that balances the flavors of candied fruits.

With its charming aromas of spice drop, ripe cherries and schistous minerality, this Taylor looks set to zoom. And it is tasty, but also a bit soft and lacking structure - something unexpected from a Port under the Taylor label. Turns chocolaty on the finish.
