2009 Taylor Vargellas Vinha Velha

Post by g-man » 17:37 Mon 18 Jul 2016

Popped and poured

given only 30 minutes to breath in the glass before tasting.

A youthful, primal nose still, with strong notes of blackberry jam and lavender.

Just a ton of blackberries hiding the super silky tannins. A medium closer to full bodied port that shows some finesse as the fruit is incredibly clean. The finish has notes of dusty coffee bean grindings touching off with a lingering sweet tannic aftertaste that makes you salivate for the next sip.

A fantastic young port.

95.
