Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port Wine 2003

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Bright saturated ruby. Vibrant pure aromas of blackberry violet and bitter chocolate. Juicy minerally precise and penetrating but quite primary and unevolved today. Shows strong but integrated acidity and a tight kernel of fruit. Best today on the slow-building rising aristocratic finish. But today the wine s tannins are less obvious than its acids. This seems distinctly less ripe and chewy than the great 2000 Taylor s but it s still extremely unevolved. Latour-like in its structure and reserve. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
