Taylor Fladgate vintage Port 1992 Portugese Red Dessert Wine 750 mL
Taylor Fladgate vintage Port 1992 Portugese Red Dessert Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited! No Discounts rated 100 points Wine Advocate February 1995 "Taylor's 1992 Vintage Port is unquestionably the greatest young port I have ever tasted. It represents the essence of what vintage port can achieve. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up fabulously intense aromas of minerals, cassis, blackberries, licorice, and spices, as well as extraordinary purity and penetration. Yet this is still an unformed and infantile wine. If Chateau Latour made a late-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, I suspect it might smell like this. In the mouth, the wine is out of this world, displaying layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits backed by well-integrated tannin and structure. This is a massive, magnificently rich, full-bodied port that will be far more flattering in its youth than were such Taylors as the 1983, 1977, or 1970. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineated by the wine's formidable structure. This monumental 30-50 year port is a must purchase for port aficionados.! Also noteworthy is the fact that the 1992 Taylor commemorates the 300th anniversary of this firm, as evidenced by the special bottle Taylor used for this port." -Robert Parker

rated 96 points Winespectator May 31, 2005 "Fresh and lively, with raisin, spice and hints of blackberry. Full-bodied and very tight, with plenty of tannins. Very long. Needs to open. '91/'92 Port retrospective. Best after 2008. 6,200 cases made." –James Suckling

Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2003 Portuguese Red Dessert Wine
Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2003 Portuguese Red Dessert Wine

Rated 95 points Wine Advocate June 2013

The 2003 Taylor’s has a lovely ripe, primal bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, vanilla and marmalade that shows slightly better delineation than the Fonseca. The palate is medium-bodied with very composed, refined tannins that belie the heat of that summer. There is wonderful focus here and fine tension, the finish offering precise notes of black cherries, mulberry, cloves and white pepper. This is one of the finest Ports of a precocious vintage. Tasted May 2013.

Taylor Fladgate Vintage Porto 1994 Portuguese Dessert Wine
Taylor Fladgate Vintage Porto 1994 Portuguese Dessert Wine

Extremely limited! No Discounts rated 100 points Winespectator, #1 of Winespectator's Top 100 wines of the year 1997 "In a word, superb. It's full-bodied, moderately sweet and incredibly tannic, but there's amazing finesse and refinement to the texture, not to mention fabulous, concentrated aromas of raspberries, violets and other flowers. Perhaps the greatest Taylor ever, it's better than either the '92 or the '70, though it's very like the '70 in structure. Best after 2010. 10,000 cases made." –James Suckling

rated 97 points Wine Advocate October 1996 "When tasting young vintage ports, Taylor is always the most backward. Yet potentially, it has the capability to be the most majestic. This classically made, opaque purple-colored wine is crammed with black fruits (blueberries and cassis). It reveals high tannin and a reserved style, but it is enormously constituted with massive body, a formidable mid-palate, and exceptional length. It is a young, rich, powerful Taylor that will require 10-15 years of aging. Compared to the more flashy, forward style of the 1992, the 1994 has more in common with such vintages as 1977 and 1970. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2045." -Robert Parker

Warre's 1670 Warrior Porto
Warre's 1670 Warrior Porto

"Warrior is the oldest mark of Port in the world, having been shipped continuously since the 1750's. The name Warrior was branded on the casks of Warre's finest Reserve Ports since the earliest days of the firm. The traditional style has been maintained over the years and it is today a classic full-bodied wine with wonderful richness and balance. "Warrior is drawn from Warre's finest quintas in the Pinhao and Rio Torto valleys that produce Warre's Vintage Ports. The firm's head winemaker, Peter Symington, will select vats of particularly rich and fruity Port to set aside for maturing in oak casks in the lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia." -The Winery

Warre's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2003 Portugese Dessert Wine
Warre's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2003 Portugese Dessert Wine

Carefully selected from the finest wines of a very good year, this port is aged in oak casks for 4 years before being bottled without fining or filtration. This ensures that, as with Vintage Port, the fruit concentration is retained.



Once bottled, Warre's Traditional Late Bottled Vintage Port is left to mature for a further 5 years in Warre's own cellars before being offered for sale. It is this prolonged ageing in its own bottle that gives this particular LBV so much outstanding style and complexity.
