Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port 40 year old
With an intense amber, tawny color, the wine has voluptuous, spicy, tangy marmalade and nutty aromas with raisiny notes and toast from the long aging in cask. The full palate is very rich, with concentrated flavor and has a long, mellow finish. Pairs well with figs, almonds and caramel. It can also be served at the end of the meal with walnuts or dried fruit and it can be slightly chilled in the summer.
Alluring, with a warm date and gently mulled fig and peach core gliding through, while light alder, bitter almond and candied ginger notes add sparkle and texture along the edges. Frankly sweet through the finish but with the energy for balance. Drink now.
A superb wine, elegance and weight combined magisterially. It has all the right mature flavors, ripe fruit, intense marmalade and concentration. This is a wine with a great reputation, and the taste doesn't let that reputation down.
