Review: Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port (2010)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 24, 2018

The Fladgate Partnership owns three important Port houses, Taylor’s Port (Taylor Fladgate), Fonseca, and Croft’s. Of the three, Taylor’s is the oldest and most influential, founded in 1692 in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal by Job Bearsley. Although ownership of the company has moved through a variety of families, Taylor’s is (and has been since inception) independently owned and managed.

The wines used in the Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage 2010 Port blend are drawn from a reserve of full-bodied red ports which were produced from the 2010 harvest, from grapes grown on Taylor’s own vineyards and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas. This wine remained in wood about five years and was bottled in 2015.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port (2010)

“… I taste ripe plums, black raspberries, and spicy raisins which bring a mild impression of cinnamon to the fore. I also taste lightly bitter grape skins (tannins) which pucker my mouth slightly and add to an impression of moderate acidity …”

Please enjoy my first wine review of 2018.

Chimo!
