With air notes of molasses burnt sugar spices and jammy plums emanate from the glass. Full-bodied hugely dense immensely rich as well as thick this behemoth is also amazingly balanced and harmonious. Raisins molasses licorice black cherries plums and a distinctive note of violets are found in its complex seamless character. Its interminable finish reveals additional notes of chocolate kirsch red as well as black currants dark cherries and rose blossoms. Armed with exceptional power depth and purity this Taylor will proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the finest ever crafted by the Fladgate Partnership...

Inky purple in color this youngest Taylor vintage Port boasts a floral wonderfully open and appealing bouquet backed by layers of rich fruit. What makes this wine extra special is the seductive texture-somewhere between...

What makes this wine extra special is the seductive texture-somewhere between creamy and syrupy-and ample length. Hold.

Lovely aromas of currants blackberries and licorice. Full-bodied with medium sweetness and layers of ripe round velvety tannins. Flavorful finish. More round and refined than from barrel. Best after 2014. 13000 cases... Lovely aromas of currants blackberries and licorice. Full-bodied with medium sweetness and layers of ripe round velvety tannins. Flavorful finish.

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... 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.
