    (Taylor (Fladgate) Porto Vintage) Bricking medium cherry red color with pale meniscus; odd, dried out, dried orange, VA nose; tasty, dried berry, cherry, roses palate with depth, a little hot, not showing as well as prior bottles; long finish (decanted for about 3 hours)

    (Taylor's Vintage Port) On first opening it, this wine gave off some wonderfully sweet and complex aromas, very reminiscent of roasted meats, with a savoury-sweet, chargrilled note. This sweet, meaty, aroma stayed with the wine over the three days, with little touches of caramel. But it also showed some impressively persistent fruit, notes of gently macerated cherry and plum, with pepper and nutmeg spices. The palate doesn't disappoint after such a promising nose; most importantly it has a balanced, harmonious composition, where every component just seems to be present to just the right degree. It starts off with a very fresh, fluid presence, deliciously gentle and detached, before building both in grip and in backbone through the midpalate. It shows some firm alcohol on the finish, but with a creamy weight, plentiful fruit complexity and some chalky tannins which suggest to me that this wine will continue to improve in the cellar. And the length? It is very pleasing. Not, surprisingly, remarkably long, fading with little ceremony, but it does linger for a little while. Overall, a super wine which should drink well for a decade at least, and perhaps much longer than that. A great bottle.
