"Precise dark cherry, Seville orange, fresh fig and a hint of scorched soil. The palate is full-bodied packed with ripe black cherries, fresh fig and white pepper; very harmonious and focused although I feel that the 2007 has a little more depth and persistency. Very pretty and very pure, this Taylor's may well put on weight with a couple of years in bottle and merit a higher mark." WA 95

Plump and dry, kirsch, black tea, licorice, anise spice, cocoa bitter chocolate, noticeably tannic and dry in the finish (Coravin tap from 2 months ago)

Great, sometimes overlooked vintage port year, this was all youth, power and structure. Great checking in...but wait...it's apex is a ways away.

I still marvel at how much vintage Port is like regular wine if you have the right mindset and tasting experience. Black cherry, blueberry, ripe mission figs, intense and powerful, yet has elegance too. Superbly long finish (kind of standard for a good VP), this is a thinkers wine too. Also the Coravin could be the best thing ever invented for this wine category?

Vtg 2009: elegance, bing cherry, blueberries, spice and saddle leather, layers of flavor, though still tight come through, 30 mins in the glass changed the dimensions. Medium + tannins, frame a long, complex finish of fruit and spice.

One of WS top 100 wines of 2015. Very dark ruby red. Aromas of fresh ripe black fruits, showing blackberry and cherry on the palate. Elegant style with rich fine grained tannins, still a bit tight, with an edge of sweetness.  Well balanced, enjoyable, long finish ending with cacao notes. You can open this wine and it will still maintain freshness for a couple of weeks.
