2000 Taylor's Quinta de Vargellas Vinha Velha

Post by DRT » 22:06 Thu 25 Sep 2008

Tasted at Quinta de Vargellas on Friday 19th Sep 08 with Frederick Blais.
My first VV 8--)

Gorgeous nose. Surprisingly approachable with plums and a very sweet finish. This wine has none of the heat that I would normally associate with Taylor's VPs. Very, very nice but I do wonder how it will age given how approachable it is now?
