Medium ruby color with a tawny rim. It showed Eucalyptus, violets, a mint streak, and minerals on the complex nose. It delivers gorgeous plum flavors, full-bodied mouth feel and is mostly smooth texturally, with some alcohol poking through, especially on the finish. A long aftertaste marred slightly by the spirit, with mild tannins still present and overall this Taylor is a very harmonious bottling. Always a delight to try bottles of this exemplary VP.

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. The 1963 is quite fabulous yet still seemingly capable of developing for another decade or more.


Winemaker's Notes:

Full bodied, powerful and concentrated but with excellent balance and structure, this dark royal purple wine now shows exquisite black cherry, plum and espresso coffee flavors and aromas on the mid-palate, those yielding nicely on the long finish to dark chocolate and an appealing hint of earthiness. Well balanced and with tannins that have finally softened.
