2004 Taylor's Quinta de Vargellas Vinha Velha

Post by DRT » 22:07 Thu 25 Sep 2008

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

The nose is more raw and youthfull than the 2000 VV tasted alongside this one. It is also lighter in weight with a raw finish. I'm sorry to say this wine is just too young for my palate to fully appreciate. Ignoring the youthful characteristics I suspect that this will not be as good as the 2000.
