Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2016

375 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  635524

In 2016 Taylor's began picking in Vargellas on 17 September, followed by Pinhão Valley estate on 23 and 26 September. The 2016 Vintage Port has an aristocratic bouquet with tight wound aromas of blackberry, bilberry, crushed stone, black olive and a light, marine-tinged element, perhaps almost peat-like. The palate is just beautiful with fine, chiseled tannins and a perfect line of acidity. There is that almost 'arching' structure one always seeks in a great Taylor's with a gentle but insistent grip towards the finish. It is everything you really want from a Vintage Port. Drinking window: 2026-2076. Score - 97. (Neal Martin, vinous.com, June 2018)
