Taylor's Vintage Port
The 2003 Taylor’s has a lovely ripe, primal bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, vanilla and marmalade that shows slightly better delineation than the Fonseca. The palate is medium-bodied with very composed, refined tannins that belie the heat of that summer. There is wonderful focus here and fine tension, the finish offering precise notes of black cherries, mulberry, cloves and white pepper. This is one of the finest Ports of a precocious vintage. 95 pts Neal Martin Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. At 16 years of age this is just entering into it's drinking window, though there is no hurry, there is also no need to wait 25+ years to start drinking vintage port!
