"Vivid ruby colored rim around a deep purple black center. On the nose, the first impression is of brambly woodland berries and rich, jammy aromas of blackcurrant. Around this dense core of ripe dark berry fruit are leafy scents of mint and wild herbs, a subtle spiciness and fleeting cedary notes of cigar box. The palate is underpinned by firm, linear tannins and lifted by a lively acidity. Thick, luscious cassis flavors blend with raspberry and apricot and carry through into the very long finish. An archetypal Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage, elegant and restrained, with great quality and purity of fruit."

Taylor's is one of the oldest of the founding Port houses. The history of the firm is in many ways the history of the Port trade itself.
Since its foundation the company has remained independent. Now well into its fourth century, it has thrived and prospered, establishing itself as one of the world's most respected historic wine houses. This has been achieved through the perseverance, pioneering spirit and continuity of purpose of successive generations of family involvement.
