Taylor Fladgate Porto Vintage Quinta de Vargellas 1974

Member Review by ryanopaz:

Medium intense color with slight orange tinge at the rim. Mose of wood, anise, deep berry notes, faint clove and lots more. Rich mouthfeel w/slight woddiness, rich dryed fruits of cherry, blackberry, Plum and dates. Big in the mouth with a strong alcohol finish. this kept developing for at least 2 hours showing candied cherries later on. I was really surprised how big this was for being 30yrs old. Maybe not the most complex port but definatley delicious! [NR]
