Critic Ratings

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 94:
This gorgeous Port is at the perfect stage where there are still freshness and hints of orange and dried fruit, while the wood aging is concentrating the wine into its essence.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 92:
Focused and fresh, with hints of green tea and ginger flittering in the background, while date, toffee, cinnamon and warm fruitcake notes form the core. Stylish finish.

Wine & Spirits Review - Rated 92:
A classical balance of the fresh and the mature, this 20-Year-Old offers warm honey, apple and almond notes on a supple texture with just a touch of grip. The flavors are rich while the structure holds them tight.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 92:
The NV 20 Year Old Tawny was bottled with a bar top cork in 2013. It comes in at 111.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. A big mouthful, this is a 20 that first coats the palate and then ends with silky texture and concentrated flavor. Very graceful, it is not as impressive in terms of mid-palate density, but it is more than respectable. It shows fine complexity, appropriate to its age category. The finish seals the deal, more lingering and gripping than I expected from the first taste. It is another delicious Tawny from the Taylor Fladgate group this issue, so dig in.
