rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

RIch flavours of silky blackberry, baking spice and mocha from this ready to drink, well made port. Easy tannins and a sweet finish, perfect with Godiva dark chocolate truffles. An excellent value and a great addition to a special evening. Tasted May 2014.
rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port has intense aromas of black cherry, prune, caramel and light walnut. It is a full bodied, sweet, integrated fortified wine; with balanced sweetness, forward acidity, subtle tannins (no need for decanting) and a medium to long, non-syrupy finish. Drink as an aperitif, drink now – 2018+. My impression: quite NICE, 89 points – recommended for its quality and value. Tasted in September 2013 at iYellow's Taylor Fladgate Port Party http://grapeselections.com/port-and-werewolves/
