Taylor's Vintage Quinta Das Vargellas Porto Classico 2005
Quinta de Vargellas vintage ports are one of a small handful of single estate ports to have achieved the stature and reputation of the great 'declared' vintages and to be traded regularly at auction. Still as prized today as they were over 180 years ago, these distinctive wines are one of the longest established of all single estate ports.
External Reviews for Taylor's Vintage Quinta Das Vargellas Porto Classico
Dieser Port ist bekannt für seine Power und Kraft. In der Nase finden sich konzentrierte Aromen von dunklen Beeren wieder. Ein Port mit üppiger Fülle.
A big, voluptuous wine mdash; decadence in a bottle. Sports a brilliant magenta, purple color and intense aromas of plums and berries with hints of flowers. Itrsquo;s medium- to full-bodied, with chunky, velvety-tannin mouthfeel and a long aftertaste of chocolate and fruit. Lovely.
Black and smoky, this vintage from the arid steeps of Vargellas locks its sweet purple fruit behind austere tannin. Therersquo;s suppleness in the room beyond, and a range of intriguing spices that seems to derive from the tannins of the Dourorsquo;s otherworldly grapes. Long and intense, this needs 12 to 15 years to mellow.
Nuanced and firm as a young Vargellas should be, this '95 has true vintage quality. It's deeply concentrated and quite dry, with a dark fruit character completely wound up in the tart acidity and smooth, bitter chocolate tannins. the length of flavor and the potent structure show this to be more of a long-term wine than most of what '95 has to offer. it should be at its best between ten and twenty years from the vintage.
A big, voluptuous wine - decadence in a bottle. Sports a brilliant magenta, purple color and intense aromas of plums and berries with hints of flowers. It's medium- to full-bodied, with chunky, velvety-tannin mouthfeel and a long aftertaste of chocolate and fruit. Lovely.
Finesse, Tiefe, Komplexität und Eleganz sind die Eigenschaften, die diesen Jahrgangsporto der Spitzenklasse vom Anfang bis zum fast unendlichen Ende im Finale definieren. Es ist ein kompakter, vielschichtiger und äusserst nachhaltiger Wein der besonderen Art, der seinen Anspruch auf Exklusivität manifestiert.
The Vargellas vineyard is literally a bowl-shaped vineyard. This was purchased by Taylor Fladgate in the late 1800's. This house is known for its structured Ports, a bit "buttoned up" one could say, full of firm fruit and tannins. Full of licorice, mint, dark berries and a spicy, near pine needle aroma on the finish.
