TAYLOR QUINTA DE VARGELLAS

IN STOCK

2001

Origin Portugal, Port
ABV 20.5%

Single Quinta Port from one of the top houses in the Douro...Spice, violets and plummy fruit leap out of the glass. Follows well on the palate with layers of fruit and spice. There is a lovely core of acidity to to this wine which keeps it lively, fresh and extremely drinkable. Drinking very well now but will no doubt provide excellent drinking over the next 5-10 years. (Tasted Nov 2013)

So fresh and peppery! Gosh this is good - more claret than the lusher Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos, very much in tune with these wine farms' characters. Compare and contrast with any 2001 red bordeaux. At this price you would be swimming in the shallows whereas these two wines are top of the port tree. Drink: 2012-2028 (tasted 2012)

Firm crimson. Raisins and violets on the nose. Firm finish. Still tight and really not yet ready. But this is proper vintage port style! 2016-2030
