2008 Taylor Quinta de Vargellas

Post by DRT » 08:48 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

Nose very closed. Big smooth entry with lots of dark brooding fruits. Excellent structure and backbone with good acity and big bold tannins. The finish is very long and dry with dark chocolate and raspberry. A great wine that will last decades. 93 points.
