The colour is lovely and alive - a light, lively pale red. The nose is somewhere near perfect, with sweet black and red fruit, opening up with time. The palate too is well nigh perfect. Lovely balance. It has great elegant dried fruit flavours, but with a nice sweetness too. Four hours later, the nose is clear, direct and fragrant. Focussed, proper palate: full, fragrant and damn near perfect. A great experience.

(Taylor's Vintage Port) Here the capsule reveals this to be of the 1912, although the shipper is unknown, until the cork is pulled at least. This reveals it to be Taylor's, generally regarded as one of the best wines from an exceptionally good vintage. The wine has a gorgeous, orange caramel colour, and the nose is delightful, with reserved, figgy, floral, really rather stylish characteristics. On the palate, there is a lovely, creamy, rounded structure with a complete presence on the palate. Really very good indeed, and certainly the leading wine in this setting.
