Extremely understated and closed, it starts out slowly but finishes quickly. Deep ruby-purple, with berry and cherry aromas and flavors, full-bodied, very tannic and hard. Great future.

In a word, superb. It's full-bodied, moderately sweet and incredibly tannic, but there's amazing finesse and refinement to the texture, not to mention fabulous, concentrated aromas of raspberries, violets and other flowers. Perhaps the greatest Taylor ever, it's better than either the '92 or the '70, though it's very like the '70 in structure. Best after 2010.

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.

Saturated black/purple-colored, with stunning aromatics of blueberries, blackberries, licorice and iron, this is one of the stars of the vintage. Extremely full-bodied, with silky tannin, spectacular concentration and purity, multiple flavor levels, and a more evolved, forward personality than Taylor's other top vintages, this is an exquisite yet precocious 1997 vintage port. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.

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.

Beautiful. A young Port, with pretty blackberry, violet and cherry character. full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Very well done. Best after 2007.

In tastings of young vintage ports, Taylor is always the most backward. Yet potentially, it has the capability to be the most majestic. This classically made, opaque purple-colored wine is crammed with black fruits (blueberries and cassis). It reveals high tannin and a reserved style, but it is enormously constituted with massive body, a formidable mid-palate, and exceptional length. It is a young, rich, powerful Taylor that will require 10-15 years aging. Compared to the more flashy, forward style of the 1992, the 1994 has more in common with such vintages as 1977 and 1970. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2045.
