Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Port 750ml
Taylor’s 20 Year Old Tawny is a magnificent, finely constituted old tawny blend, produced in limited quantities. Selected red ports produced in the eastern areas of the Douro Valley, including Taylor’s own estates, are matured in oak casks in Taylor’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Here the cool and damp coastal climate encourages a gentle aging process producing aromas of great complexity and finesse. In the 20 Year Old tawny, the fruit has mellowed further than in the 10 Year Old, and the spicy, nutty aromas of aging are more powerful and intense.
Like the 10 Year Old, the 20 Year Old is bottled when ready to drink and does not require any further aging in bottle.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: It is my opinion that Taylor’s tawny ports are the best of this type. When tasted against other tawnys, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length.
