1997 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port Reviews

96 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“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 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“This is rather flashy for Taylor, with plenty of upfront appeal to its floral, spicy aromas and gobs of fruit. It's very lush and soft on the palate, almost overloaded with blackberries and plums, then firms up and begins to show that Taylor reserve on the dusty finish. Hold.”

95 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“Saturated deep ruby. Great minerally aromas of black plum, black cherry, roasted meat, and deep spices. Very sweet and very dense, with youthfully backward black fruit, mineral, and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes with wonderfully ripe, sweet tannins and superb persistence and grip. Has the verve most '97s lack. This may ultimately challenge the great '94.”

94 Pointz Wine Spectator

“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.”

Bonus Reviews

18/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine

“Very dark purplish crimson. Unformed peppery nose. Extremely voluptuous, satiny fruit followed by lots of acidity and tannin – just a baby but a very bonny baby indeed. Should provide great port drinking eventually. Violets, perfume, nice dry finish.”
