2012 Taylor Vargellas

Post by AHB » 15:57 Sun 08 Jun 2014

Deep red, less purple than the FG12 shown alongside. Restrained floral nose, faint but lovely. Smooth entry with the palate dominated by powerful tannins over the top of lovely sweet fruit. Nice balance, but of power rather than elegance. Great layering of flavours on the palate and an immense finish that comes with many twists and turns. Lovely port. 94-96. Drunk 03-Jun-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
