2007 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:15 Tue 12 May 2009

A single tasting opportunity at the London presentation of 2007 vintage ports presented by the Symingtons, Taylor Fladgate and Noval.

Deeply crimson in colour, but with a centre that was just transparent. Again a nose with green leaves all over it, closed and quite difficult to coax anyuthing out of the glass, but what does come out is pleasant ripe fruit. Very silky texture on entry, but always witht he big tannins hiding behind the layers of fruit. The aftertaste is generous and mouthfilling, full of layers of flavour. A good port, but not quite as good as the Fonseca. 91-93. Tasted 6/5/09.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
