Among the most saturated blue/purple/black-colored examples of the vintage, Taylor's 2000 tastes like a young vintage of Chateau Latour on steroids. Aromas of graphite, blackberry liqueur, creme de cassis and smoke jump from the glass. Spectacularly concentrated and enormously endowed, with sweetness allied to ripe tannin, decent acidity, and layer upon layer of fruit and extract, this is the leading candidate for the port of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040

The nose has the richness of ripe fruit mainly black fruit in character but under the richness there are some fresh red fruits that bring out the fragrances. The palate is fleshy ripe packed with fruit with the lush black plum fleshing out the back palate. There is a fresher feel towards the back and the tannins are still quite tight slightly holding back the fruit on the finish.
