Buy Taylor Fladgate Porto Vintage
Taylor Fladgate vintage port is marked by a style which seamlessly marries power and longevity with grace and finesse. Its dense, concentrated black fruit and tannic backbone evolve over time into integrated flavors of dark berry and plum offset by complex notes of leaf, rose petal and chocolate and a long, refined finish.
Wine Advocate 96 points - The 2011 Taylors Vintage 2011 has a multifaceted, Pandoras Box of a nose that is mercurial in the glass: cassis at first before blackberry and raspberry politely ask it to move aside, followed by wilted rose petals and Dorset plum. Returning after one 45 minutes that nose has shut up shop. The palate is sweet and sensual on the entry, plush and opulent, with copious black cherries, boysenberry and cassis fruit, curiously more reminiscent of Fonseca! It just glides across the palate with a mouth-coating, glycerine-tinged finish that has a wonderful lightness of touch, demonstrating how Vintage Port is so much more accessible in its youth nowadays. But dont let that fool you into dismissing the seriousness or magnitude of this outstanding Taylors. Tasted May 2013.  (Jun 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 97 points - There is an initial smoky character, followed by a burst of ripe, rich black fruits, giving the wine weight and a dark, brooding core. Black plum and berry fruits, considerable acidity and a delicate final perfume flesh out this wine’s character. For serious aging. - Cellar Selection (Nov 2013)

Taylor’s finest and rarest wine, the very pinnacle of port. Only in a year when everything is perfect does Taylor`s ‘declare’ a vintage. With the company’s reputation at stake, ‘declaring’ is not taken lightly, since it invites a knowledgeable and worldwide audience to judge whether perfection has indeed been achieved. The ultimate collector’s wines, Taylor`s Vintage Ports will last for fifty years or more. They are renowned for their massive structure, concentration of flavor and distinctive ‘masculine’ style. Bottled after two years in wood, they continue to mature for decades in the cellar, slowly attaining the sublime elegance and power which are the hallmarks of the Taylor`s style.
Food pairing
They can be enjoyed without food, but cheese is a fine accompaniment, as are nuts or dried fruits.
