2009 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port Reviews

97 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Now with a couple years in bottle, I am erring to the Taylor’s over the Fonseca (although these can always change!) The Taylor’s show more delineation and refinement with pure black currant, cassis, pencil box, hints of marzipan, and a hint of dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied and sumptuous with super-fine tannins, very pure blackberry, and boysenberry notes interlaced with cedar, dried fig, and a touch of black pepper on the beautifully refined finish. Excellent.”

96 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Cellar Selection

“Taylor Fladgate's vintage Ports are always among the legendary wines. This hugely structured wine keeps the dense, perfumed tradition very much alive. Along with the power, it also has wonderful fruit, bursting out with blackberry jam. Even with all the fruitiness, it needs to age for decades.”

94 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Intensely fruity and dripping with luscious dark cherry, blackberry, and blueberry flavors, leading to touches of sandalwood. Medium-grained tannins carry through to the lush, spice- and chocolate-filled finish. This shows fine grip and balance, with a very modern feel.”

93 Pointz James Suckling

“Aromatic and bright with violet, blueberry, and sandlewood character. Full-bodied and medium sweet with fine tannins and a long finish. Refined.”

93 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“Very ripe, expressive nose offers cassis, black cherry, licorice, and exotic herbs. Hugely rich, thick, and powerful in the context of the vintage, but with lovely purity and a saline complexity to the flavors of crushed black cherry and boysenberry. This will need some time in bottle to harmonize its brandy but has the spine for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle.”

18/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine

“Blackish purple. This, unusually, had the headiness of Fonseca 2009 on the nose and seemed more luscious and velvety than the Quinta da Vargellas Vinha Velha on the palate. Very rich, round, and thrilling. Dense and pure. A bit of a schoolmaster in terms of straight back and firm structure. Very long, firm, and thrilling – surely a long-term bet with additional early charm, presumably from the exceptionally hot, dry vintage.”
