Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port Mid-Shoulder Fill Cracked Capsule 1948

Winemaker's Notes:

100 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...unmistakably profound. The bouquet... offers up a flawless blend of sweet plum and black cherry fruit, mint, woodsmoke, bass notes of black pepper, fennel, a bit of paraffin, fine minerality and a pungent topnote of violet. On the palate the wine is deep, huge and profound, with haunting focus and balance, and underlying youthful and pure fruit tones magically synthesized to floral and herb-spice tones, and great expression of soil. The finish is endless and perfectly balanced, with great intensity and rapier-like grip. This is a brilliant vintage for Taylor that is deserving of all the praise that goes with it, and as utterly magical as it is to drink right now... 2020-2100. (Jan/Feb 2007)
