External Reviews for Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port Port
Good ruby color still. The nose is fresh, with lots of crushed berry and plum, with a hint of piecrust. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a caressing texture. This delivers loads of complex fruit and spiciness. Medium-sweet. A beauty. Will improve f... Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1977 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 750ml
Taylor’s owns two great vineyards in the Douro, Quinta de Vargellas and Quinta de Terra Feita. Both are categorised grade A – the highest possible rating. In years when Taylor’s produces a classic vintage, wines from these two estates are blended together. As they are some 20 miles apart, and subject to very different microclimates, they combine to produce a powerful, long lived and complex vintage port.
Deep rich red colour, opaque in the centre with lighter brick edges. Good intense mature fruit aromas. Nice depth and richness with chocolate, cherry and blackberry fruits coming through. Rounded firm, full palate. Concentrated flavours of raisin and treacle. A smooth velvety finish. Drink now – 2020.
