Another of Jefford’s star wines, which is only to be expected from Taylor, known as the ‘First-growth’ of the port houses. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Very ripe on the nose, with raisin and dried flowers. Full-bodied, medium-sweet and chewy, Racy and rich. Still needs time, but you can drink and enjoy if you decant a few hours before. Best after 2011. Rating: 94 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator(Sep 2011)
Very dark purplish crimson. Unformed peppery nose. Extremely voluptuous, satiny fruit followed by lots of acidity and tannin – just a baby but a very bonny baby indeed. Should provide great port drinking eventually. Violets, perfume, nice dry finish. 2010-2025 Rating: 18 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Sep 2011)
Saturated black/purple-colored, with stunning aromatics of blueberries, blackberries, licorice, and iron, this spectacular vintage port is one of the stars of the vintage. Extremely full-bodied, with silky tannin, spectacular concentration and purity, multiple flavor levels, and an evolved, forward personality, this is an exquisite yet precocious 1997 vintage port. 2004-2030.

For the indecisive, or the merely curious, a mixed pack of three bottles of the top wines from the Fladgate Partnership. Contains one bottle each of Taylor, Dow and Warre, all from 1997! An ideal gift for any Port connoisseur.
