Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

96-98 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): The 2011 Taylor's Vintage 2011 has a multifaceted, Pandora's Box of a nose... cassis at first before blackberry and raspberry politely ask it to move aside, followed by wilted rose petals and Dorset plum... The palate is sweet and sensual on the entry, plush and opulent, with copious black cherries, boysenberry and cassis fruit... with a mouth-coating, glycerine-tinged finish that has a wonderful lightness of touch... (May 2013)

The 2011 Taylors Vintage 2011 has a multifaceted Pandoras Box of a nose that is mercurial in the glass: cassis at first before blackberry and raspberry politely ask it to move aside followed by wilted rose petals and Dorset plum. Returning after one 45 minutes that nose has shut up shop. The palate is sweet and sensual on the entry plush and opulent with copious black cherries boysenberry and cassis fruit curiously more reminiscent of Fonseca! It just glides across the palate with a mouth-coating glycerine-tinged finish that has a wonderful lightness of touch demonstrating how Vintage Port is so much more accessible in its youth nowadays. But dont let that fool you into dismissing the seriousness or magnitude of this outstanding Taylors. Tasted May 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Taylor Fladgate is the aristocrate of Port wines. Always outstanding and rarely outdone in the spectacular 2011 vintage this wine scored high 90's across the board. The Wine Advocate gave it 96-98 and said "The 2011 Taylor’s Vintage 2011 has a multifaceted, Pandora’s Box of a nose that is mercurial in the glass: cassis at first before blackberry and raspberry politely ask it to move aside, followed by wilted rose petals and Dorset plum.
