Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port Port 2007

Member Review by puhnner:

Had this after dinner at Trombino's. A Wonderful Wondrous Ruby Port. Can't say it any better than this 'The Wine Advocate - "The 2007 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port is a blend of multiple sites meant to express the house style in a great year. It displays a superb aromatic array of pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, blackberry, and floral notes. Dense, suave, and opulent on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, intense, layered wine that has superb grip and concentration. It will effortlessly age for 25+ years and still be delivering pleasure at age 50. "'

(Barrel tasting) A classic baby Vintage Port nose of blackberry, currant and a little bit of green lemon leaf. Full-bodied and medium sweet. There's a solid core of ripe fruit and powerful tannins, with grip. The real deal.

Everything in my notes indicates the classic Taylor style: powerful, built to last, fine structure and grip, unassailable Port. This is a dramatic wine that fills every pore of the mouth with flavor, though there's nothing particularly fruity about it. What comes forward in this young Taylor is an austerity, the scent of iron, a peppery brightness, structural elements that were less overt in the rounder '94. Still, the '97's hard-core structure is balanced by a supple fruit component; the form of the wine is complete. the flavors may not fully emerge for years, which is what you'd expect from a great Taylor vintage. Drink 2014 through 2027 and beyond.

Among the most saturated blue/purple/black-colored examples of the vintage, Taylor's 2000 tastes like a young vintage of Château Latour on steroids. Aromas of graphite, blackberry liqueur, crème de cassis, and smoke jump from the glass. Spectacularly concentrated and enormously endowed, with sweetness allied to ripe tannin, decent acidity, and layer upon layer of fruit and extract, this is the leading candidate for the port of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040.

Even better than the excellent 1992, this is a live wire of a vintage Port boasting zingy berry, leaf, raspberry and earth aromas and flavors. It's full-bodied, and very closed. Tannins are super full. A big and muscular Taylor.

This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. Their tawnys are also among the very best, though somewhat expensive. Two bottles of the 1985 were tasted and each was different. One was compact and dull, the other beefy, rich, full-bodied, and loaded. While the better bottle clearly was outstanding, it was not as sublime or as sensational as one expects Taylor to be, and not as rich or as profound as the 1983, 1977 or 1970. Perhaps this particular port, usually one of my favorites, it going through an awkward stage. Judgment reserved.

The 2007 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port is a blend of multiple sites meant to express the house style in a great year. It displays a superb aromatic array of pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, blackberry, and floral notes. Dense, suave, and opulent on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, intense, layered wine that has superb grip and concentration. It will effortlessly age for 25+ years and still be delivering pleasure at age 50. As always, Taylor Fladgate is one of the benchmarks of a declared vintage in Oporto.

Bright, deep ruby. Superripe but youthfully clenched aromas of kirsch, blueberry, black licorice, smoke and minerals. Densely packed, suave and thick; has the texture of liquid velvet but urgent minerality gives it outstanding energy and a light touch. Best today on the slow-building, firmly tannic, spicy, palate-staining finish, which shows more grip and thrust than the Vargellas. This gained in complexity and definition for upwards of 72 hours in the recorked bottle. The Vargellas is an outstanding site expression while this is a great blend-and likely to enjoy a slower evolution in bottle. As usual, this should be among the longest-lived wines of the vintage.
