Description

Taylor's Vintage Port, Portugal, 1997

Black purple; opaque. Dense, tight, rich full fruit nose. Cedar and dark berry aromas. A big, full bodied wine with great finesse and style. Great character and potential.

1997 harvest: The high quality was evident in the Port wines from the start, with the intensity of the must, good integration of the spirit and powerful, attractive aromas.

"Juicy and energetic, with lots of warm raisin, toffee and toasted peanut notes, mixed with mulled fig, singed juniper and baked plum flavors. Has a warm Christmas pudding feel through the finish, with nicely inlaid brambly grip."

94/100 pointsJames Molesworth, The Wine Spectator
 
"Saturated black/purple-colored, with stunning aromatics of blueberries, blackberries, licorice, and iron, this spectacular vintage port is one of the stars of the vintage. Extremely full-bodied, with silky tannin, spectacular concentration and purity, multiple flavor levels, and an evolved, forward personality, this is an exquisite yet precocious 1997 vintage port."
 
96/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr., January, 2000

Taylor’s Vintage Ports are renowned for their massive structure and aromatic power, tempered by a characteristic understatement and restraint. The ultimate collector’s Port wines, Vintage Ports will age for decades in the cellar, slowly developing the elegance and harmony which are the hallmarks of a mature Taylor’s Vintage Port.
