Established in 1692, Taylor’s is regarded by many as the benchmark for vintage port.
Boasting a hefty 100 points from James Suckling, their 2016 is off the charts, displaying serious power and intensity. It should really be cellared for 10 years or more to attain maximum effect, so perhaps a gift? To yourself, quite possibly.
Deep purple black with a narrow magenta rim. High notes of pure, intense woodland fruit with lively accents of green apple, fresh plum and raspberry. Around this core of bright, singing fruit is a heady aura of gumcistus and wild herbs.
On a deeper register, exotic notes of cedarwood and jasmine provide an additional dimension of complexity. The wine has an attractive leanness and muscularity with sinewy, linear tannins that integrate seamlessly into the mid palate and with a long finish.
