Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes Taylor Fladgate 50 Year Golden Age Port Tawny

Taylor Fladgate 50 Year Golden Age Tawny Port is a liquid legacy, radiating an exquisite amber glow reminiscent of polished mahogany, a tribute to five decades of patient aging. The nose unfolds an opulent bouquet, where the essence of sun-drenched raisins and dried apricots intertwines with subtle whispers of orange blossom and a hint of aged leather. Layers of toasted pecans and a trace of exotic spices create an olfactory opus, evoking the spirit of a bygone era.

On the palate, this Tawny Port presents an extraordinary tapestry of flavors. Luxurious caramel and molasses form a symphony of sweetness, gracefully accompanied by nuanced hints of dark chocolate and a suggestion of black tea. The velvety texture glides with the elegance of time, revealing the wine's prolonged maturation. The finish is a harmonious conclusion, leaving an enduring impression of honeyed dates and a touch of rare port cask.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 97:
The NV 50 Year Old Tawny Port is a field blend bottled with a bar-top cork in 2022 and with 158 grams of residual sugar. Mature, with dark chocolate nuances, this is rich, deep and sensationally delicious. The concentration is exceptional too. Then, there's the long, long finish, filled with fruit and sugar. It is irresistible, in addition to being nuanced and complex. It's young enough so that it is never just a curiosity. The fruit is certainly not cracking.

James Suckling Review - Rated 97:
Aromas of balsamic, mahogany, Georgian furniture and dried fruits. Salted dried almonds. Medium-bodied, very sweet. Sultanas. Figs. Yet fresh and intensely flavored with a long, long finish. Love the finish. Salted caramel. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 96:
A bird of a different feather, this sports a range of date, mulled plum and persimmon fruit flavors that are curvaceous in feel, allied to a racy green tea and hazelnut spine. Picks up singed white sesame, walnut husk, alder smoke and sandalwood along the way. Reveals terrific tension between the viscous and nervy sides from start to finish.
