2nd bottle purchased Dec, 2022.
1st bottle consumed Christmas, 2022 into January.
Very satisfying dark port, so nice with fruit cake and other sweets.
Enjoyed with company over the holidays...one to go.
Devlon rated this wine as 88/100
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A classic, rich and satisfying Tawny port. Taylors 10 yr. offers intense aromas of chocolate covered cherries, coffee, brandy and dried fruit. Flavours are rich and luscious; nutty with raisins and spicy cinnamon heat. Low acidity, with a full body and a velvety rich long finish. Sweetness: 123g/L Pair with chocolate mousse, and Black Forest cake.
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Taylor Fladgate is often considered the standard-bearer for Tawny Ports - at least those readily available. With this 10-year, it's easy to see why.

Floral aromas with clay, wood, red berries and dried fruits.

Wonderful palate of spirits and savoury dried fruits, resinous notes, medium+ finish.

Tawnies are generally more versatile than LBVs, with the savoury backbone offering a lot of latitude. An excellent introduction to the style.

Last tasted November 2016.
Alex & Priya rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Priya: This is the port that I know and love. Rich, strong, and full-bodied with a long aftertaste. Amazing value for a solid port. 90pts

Alex: Fair bit of fruit on the nose - strawberry-cherry jam, some rhubarb, light toffee and a touch of heat. Nutty accent to a strawberry liqueur finish of fine length. Moderate sweetness, and with some heat poking through the finish. Good. 89pts

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
