Taylor Fladgate Porto 10 Year Old Tawny

Taylor Fladgate Porto 10 Year Old Tawny 750ml         
Sku: 1013503

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

An exceptionally fine old tawny blend, aged for an average of 10 years in oak casks. Elegant and smooth, combining delicate wood notes and rich mellow fruit, it is bottled for immediate drinking. Excellent with soft cheeses such as brie; and a superb dessert wine, particularly with dishes made with coffee or almonds, Taylor 10 Year Old Tawny is delicious served lightly chilled at the end of the meal.

Tasting notes
Ripe, silky, dried red currant fruit is allied to flavors of raisins and nuts in this refined, elegantly structured wine, which shows a lush, mellow texture underscored by a fresh, cleanly defined acidity.

Pale pink-brown hue. An inviting nose of caramel, leading to a palate of butterscotch, hazelnuts and dried apricots. Medium sweetness. Lovely.

Snappy, with plenty of ginger and glazed citrus notes to the dried cherry, plum and raspberry flavors. Features loads of chocolate and spice on the long, lush finish, with hints of white pepper. Drink now.—K.M.

Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011 Finalist. Mineral-like aroma, with touches of orange peel and stone. Orange blossom. grapefruit candied mouth, with sweet/tart overtones. Zap of bright orangey flavors in aftertaste.
Seductive aromas of roasted hazelnuts and raisins. The delectable palate is a wave of flavors including salted caramel, baking spice, apricots, nuts and red cherry with a striking balance between sweet and savory. Ends with a long sumptuous finish. ”
This is a great, fresh, young style of wine, with figs and bitter marmalade flavors. There’s a touch of orange peel, a hint of vanilla and very ripe, delicious fruit.
A refined and subtle Port. Outstanding. Lovely aromas of flan, caramel and egg custard with a hint of toffee. Medium-bodied, with a light sweetness and a refined, clean finish. Tastes older than 10 years. Drink now. 20,000 cases made. –JS
It is my opinion that Taylor's tawny ports are the best of their type. When tasted against other tawnys, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length. The Ten Year Old Tawny is a personal favorite, as well as the best bargain among these ports.
