Being one of the oldest Port houses, Taylor’s remains an independent company, closely involved in all stages of the production of its ports. Their Vintage ports are sourced from the finest vines of the firm’s own quintas or estates; Vargellas, Terra Feita and Junco. Traditional foot treading is still used for their production.
“A landmark vintage: the 1994s are just coming round to drink and promise a long life ahead (look out for ‘Expert’s Choice’ next month). Restrained aromas with ripe, plummy fruit just emerging. Full and sweet on the palate: well-defined plum and berry fruit backed by solid, ripe tannins with dark chocolate depth and concentration extending through the finish. Drink 2014 -2050.” – 96pts, Decanter Magazine, April 2015
