Taylor Fladgate Porto Vintage 2009

Taylor Fladgate Porto Vintage 750ml 2009     
Sku: 1690833*

Taylor’s finest and rarest wine, the very pinnacle of port. Only in a year when everything is perfect does Taylor`s ‘declare’ a vintage. With the company’s reputation at stake, ‘declaring’ is not taken lightly, since it invites a knowledgeable and worldwide audience to judge whether perfection has indeed been achieved. The ultimate collector’s wines, Taylor`s Vintage Ports will last for fifty years or more. They are renowned for their massive structure, concentration of flavor and distinctive ‘masculine’ style. Bottled after two years in wood, they continue to mature for decades in the cellar, slowly attaining the sublime elegance and power which are the hallmarks of the Taylor`s style.

Tasting notes
Taylor Fladgate vintage port is marked by a style which seamlessly marries power and longevity with grace and finesse. Its dense, concentrated black fruit and tannic backbone evolve over time into integrated flavors of dark berry and plum offset by complex notes of leaf, rose petal and chocolate and a long, refined finish.

Now with a couple years in bottle, I am erring to the Taylors over the Fonseca (although these can always change!) The Taylors show more delineation and refinement with pure black currant, cassis, pencil box, hints of marzipan and a hint of dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied and sumptuous with super-fine tannins, very pure blackberry and boysenberry notes interlaced with cedar, dried fig and a touch of black pepper on the beautifully refined finish. Excellent.

Food pairing
They can be enjoyed without food, but cheese is a fine accompaniment, as are nuts or dried fruits.
