Perhaps marginally less dense than the Fonseca when tasted but this is an elegant and composed Taylor which simply oozes class. Fine-grained tannins become increasingly evident towards the end of a long finish. Beautifully fresh and complex. A classic in the making.
The 2007 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port is a blend of multiple sites meant to express the house style in a great year. It displays a superb aromatic array of pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, blackberry, and floral notes. Dense, suave, and opulent on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, intense, layered wine that has superb grip and concentration. It will effortlessly age for 25+ years and still be delivering pleasure at age 50.
As always, Taylor Fladgate is one of the benchmarks of a declared vintage in Oporto.
A classic baby Vintage Port nose of blackberry, currant and a little bit of green lemon leaf. Full-bodied and medium sweet. There's a solid core of ripe fruit and powerful tannins, with grip. The real deal.
Serious stuff - just the merest hint of cheesiness but real complexity and almost rough tannins - hurly burly - at this stage. Very vibrant and positive with great length. This wine certainly doesn't follow any formula. Dry - yes, porty - finish. Grown up stuff. Sophisticated and a bit wild.
