1996 Taylor Quinta de Vargellas

Post by DRT » 21:32 Wed 04 Jun 2008

Purchased from Tesco with various discounts for around £14 per bottle :D

Emergency decant: Very dark colour. Huge big black fruity smell when decanting. Very smooth and refined in the mouth. Doesn't have the usual Taylor heat at this stage. Long finish.

This is a very good VP.

More later.

Good, I've got about half a dozen
Port is basically a red drink
