2007 Taylor (Fladgate) Porto Vintage Porto (750ml) [SLC]

SKU: 985291-0120-588
"94+ out of 100 - The Taylor's 2007 is in a rather odd phase at the moment, its sweet, marzipan-tinged bouquet tending to dominate the ripe black fruit. The palate is much more controlled, with very fine tannins, supremely well-judged acidity and a very elegant, composed finish that has more purity and poise than the Fonseca. I would give bottles another decade to allow the aromatics to calm down. Tasted May 2013." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

"97 out of 100 - Remarkably deep in colour, almost to the verge of being opaque. The nose is very well defined but much more introverted than Fonseca aloof, stentorian, correct. The palate is full-bodied, beautifully defined, great weight that is channelled in one direction. Brilliant focus here, less extrovert than Fonseca of course but more refined and sophisticated. Certainly this is a Taylors for long-term ageing, one can feel it reserving its energy for 20-years down the line. Great backbone here. Very harmonious towards the finish that really caresses the palate, with a hint of white pepper lingering in the mouth. Wonderful. Tasted May 2009. - Neal Martin, Wine Journal

"(94-97) out of 100 - 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." - Wine Spectator
