NV Taylor's 10 Year Old Tawny

Post by RonnieRoots » 12:04 Wed 28 May 2008

Enjoyed after a lovely dinner in the Traiteur Restaurant in Dubai last weekend. Served slightly cooled and in Schott Zwiesel Diva port glasses. Very good.

Darker than one would expect from a 10 year old. Some heat on the nose, and a whiff of alcohol. But also some nice aromas of nuts and raisins. These are also apparent on the palate together with some light fruit (wild strawberries). All very agreeable, but rather simple and a short finish.

Nothing wrong about this port, but there's nothing that makes it stand out as well. 84 points.
