ROBERT PARKER RATING: 96
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Saturated black/purple colored, with stunning aromatics of blueberries, licorice and iron, this is one of the stars of the vintage. Extremely full bodied, with silky tannin, spectacular concentration and purity, multiple flavour levels and a more evolved, forward personality than Taylor’s other top vintages, this is an exquisite yet precocious 1997 vintage port.
Taylor’s finest and rarest wine, the very pinnacle of port. Only in a year when everything is perfect does Taylor's ‘declare’ a vintage. With the company’s reputation at stake, ‘declaring’ is not taken lightly, since it invites a knowledgeable and worldwide audience to judge whether perfection has indeed been achieved. The ultimate collector’s wines, Taylor's Vintage Ports will last for fifty years or more. They are renowned for their massive structure, concentration of flavor and distinctive ‘masculine’ style. Bottled after two years in wood, they continue to mature for decades in the cellar, slowly attaining the sublime elegance and power which are the hallmarks of the Taylor's style. Taylor's Vintage Ports are classically served after lunch or dinner, in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere when their powerful aromas and rich flavors can be fully appreciated and discussed. They can be enjoyed without food, but cheese is a fine accompaniment, as are nuts or dried fruits.
