Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Port

Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Port is a splendid testament to the art of aging, displaying a captivating amber color with orange undertones, a result of two decades of meticulous maturation. The bouquet is a rich and inviting tapestry of aromas, featuring layers of dried fruits such as apricots, dates, and figs. Subtle hints of toasted almonds, hazelnuts, and a touch of caramel contribute to the wine's complex aromatic profile. Undertones of oak and spice add depth, creating an enticing olfactory experience.

On the palate, this Tawny Port offers a luxurious and velvety texture that envelops the senses. Caramel, toffee, and roasted nut flavors take center stage, showcasing a harmonious balance of sweetness and structure. The wine's extended aging is evident in its seamless integration, providing a palate that evolves gracefully. A refined acidity adds vibrancy, and the finish is enduring, leaving an indelible impression of the wine's depth and sophistication.

Critic Ratings

Tasting Panel Review - Rated 95:
Silky smooth and toasty with nuts, spice and firm acidity; elegant and complex; long and perfectly balanced; bright and exquisite.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 93:
Lovely, with a mix of persimmon, white peach, hazelnut, green tea and singed alder notes all moving together in streamlined harmony. The long, elegant finish has nice latent energy.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 93:
A complex, wood aged wine, this 20-year-old has a perfumed, dry style. Walnut and spice flavors blend together with the spirit and mature acidity. It’s rich, with just the right amount of age.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 93:
The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 and comes in at 111 grams per liter of residual sugar. On first taste, this was simply Taylor: big, concentrated and serious. It was all that and a bag of chips, but over a couple of days it also demonstrated far more elegance. It seemed arguably better balanced than the 10 year old Tawny this issue. Simply filling the mouth on first taste, this shows fine complexity for its age and it does everything else rather brilliantly. Succulent and inviting, it finishes with waves of concentrated flavors. The fruit remains lifted and and it has a bright, transparent feel. It is hard to resist, often seeming like a bit of an overachiever.
