    March 1, 2014 - Vintage Port (Fem Bord, Trondheim): Rich, dark fruits. Insane punch and concentration. Plenty of everything nicely balanced. Available and delicious.

    February 8, 2014 - Absolutely wonderful. Still very young but was just a total delight. For me all the great flavours of port were here. Sadly my only bottle as this will just continue to improve

    November 1, 2013 - Wow. I opened this nearly 8 months ago! I remember thinking, this is ok, maybe a little rough. While rearranging my drinks cabinet, I found this in the back. Oh oh.

    Nope. No oh oh. Delightful. Smooth and creamy with slightly sweet red fruit. And it goes amazing well with TJ's Ridge Cut crisps. And on it's own too.

    Glad to have a few more bottles.

    (TAYLOR FLADGATE VINTAGE PORT) #3; NOSE-like Ware's, more cherry, but also chocolate; TASTE-extemely good, love it, but doesn't have the extra sparkle that the Warre's is showing; WA(Pierre Rovani)-98, V-93

    (Taylor's Vintage Port) Lovely nose, with a typical Taylor's feminine, elegant style, alongside dark fruits and beetroot notes. Concentration here, but with finesse. A slightly raw edge to the tannins, but with good firm acids, and a feminine fruit style. Has the style, and the structure to go the distance. Good potential.
