Taylor's : Vintage Port 2016

The Refinement and Structure of a Great Vintage Port

While Taylor’s latest Vintage Port was unveiled in 2011, Taylor's 2016 promises to be very refined, revealing a perfect blend of purity and structure.

The Taylor's Vintage Port 2016 is consistent with the style that has defined the reputation of this historic Port estate, whose origins date back to 1692 and which has survived through many centuries by remaining independent.

The Taylor's Vintage Port 2016 is a blend of the finest wines from the estate's three estates: Quinta de Vargellas, Quinta de Terra Feita and Quinta de Junco. Each of these properties located in the Duriense region of Portugal is home to its very own terroir, lending the wine exceptional richness and complexity.

Although the grape harvests began late, at the end of September 2016, the weather conditions of the 2016 vintage resulted in perfectly ripe grapes with perfectly balanced fruit.

The Taylor's Vintage Port 2016 is beautiful, presenting an aromatic palette of intense fruit and complex aromas. The delicate fruit notes are enhanced by aromas of fresh plum and raspberry, all revealing a discreet woody quality. With aeration, the wine reveals the full extent of its personality, unfolding elegant floral notes with scents of rose and jasmine. On the palate, this Port wine explodes with flavour, developing the same notes perceived on the nose, while displaying a firm structured and finely grained, silky tannins. The finish stretches forward in a length marked by a nice acidity. Refinement, balance, liveliness and persistence on the finish characterise this great Vintage Port, true to to the signature style of the Taylor's estate.

J. Robinson
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Vintage Port was originally seen about a week before bottling in a more unsettled incarnation. It is now in the USA and showing in a rather forward fashion for Taylor's. It was aged for 20 months in wood and comes in with 102 grams of residual sugar. This is a pleasure just to smell, with its hints of herbs, eucalyptus and blackberries. Some more time in bottle has made this a classic Port from start to finish in terms of aromatics and flavors. In my almost-40-year history of Port drinking, Taylor's was and is always one of my benchmarks for what a Port should taste and smell like. This delivers all that in spades.
