Taylor Fladgate 20 Years Old Tawny Port Blend NV

$47.99

...Simply filling the mouth on first taste, this shows fine complexity for its age and it does everything else rather brilliantly. Succulent and inviting, it finishes with waves of concentrated flavors. The fruit remains lifted and and it has a bright, transparent feel. It is hard to resist, often seeming like a bit of an overachiever... it might be the best intersection of quality and price. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I tried 10/20/30/40 around holidays. 20-year, a personal favorite. Always amazed how good this is whenever I have a glass. Taylor run from Oporto by descendants of Yeatman & Fladgate families, both of which have been partners in the firm since 1830s. Complex aromas rich with dried fruits & nutty spice. On the palate apricot & sweet berry flavors with honey & toasted nut notes, well balanced nice acidity. Lingering finish ending smooth with oaky nutty character. Very Nice. Price keeps going up each year.

Delicious tawny port with ultra long finish. The obvious pairing is with chocolate, but I’d like to experiment with different cheeses also.

For dessert, Hedy prepared Chocolate Hazelnut Torte, Hazelnut Brittle, Hazelnut Crema. Amazing creation. This screamed for a Tawny Port. It was a marriage made in heaven. These two tangoed on the palate. The wine not too sweet, showing nice amber qualities and hazelnut characters. Such a beautiful evening and a great night of great guests, food and wine!!!

Although I am not really a tawny kind of guy, it is hard to deny the greatness of this wine. A lovely red amber color with a nose of toasted nuts, caramel and golden raisins. The attack is a bright sweet symphony of toasted nuts and golden raisin. This attack gives way to salted caramel and a long soft tannic finish. My only complaint is there is some serious heat on the finish that makes it slightly unpleasant.

Fig, chocolate, coffee. A bit hot on the finish but very solid.

20 year old Tawny lasts about 5 minutes. Always the good way to end another great wine tasting
