NV Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port 40 Year Old
Lush, silky richness reminiscent of caramel with an elegant, slightly austere quality which is quite distinctive. Intense bronze in color with subtle dried fruit flavors underlying rich, exotic layers of burnt sugar and nuts culminating in an endless finish, Taylor, Fladgate Over Forty Year Old Tawny is superb with cheeses, nuts and rich desserts, and stands alone as an ultimate digestif.
International Wine CellarBright aromas of cherry, minerals, dark chocolate, resin and apple, plus an intriguing citric note. Thick, very intensely flavored and quite sweet; a velvety, tactile wine that expands in the mouth and stains the palate. The Calvados-like apple note repeats on the finish, which features terrific thrust.
