Now with a couple years in bottle, I am erring to the Taylor’s over the Fonseca (although these can always change!) The Taylor’s show more delineation and refinement with pure black currant, cassis, pencil box, hints of marzipan and a hint of dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied and sumptuous with super-fine tannins, very pure blackberry and boysenberry notes interlaced with cedar, dried fig and a touch of black pepper on the beautifully refined finish. Excellent.

Taylor Fladgate’s vintage Ports are always among the legendary wines. This hugely structured wine keeps the dense, perfumed tradition very much alive. Along with the power, it also has wonderful fruit, bursting out with blackberry jam. Even with all the fruitiness, it needs to age for decades.

Intensely fruity and dripping with luscious dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors, leading to touches of sandalwood. Medium-grained tannins carry through to the lush, spice- and chocolate-filled finish. This shows fine grip and balance with a very modern feel. Best from 2020 through 2045.

Sheer black, this has the toughness and power that often marks a young Taylor. One side of the tannins is as hard as nails, the other suppler. It’s a grand wine with intoxicating richness, running cool on an undercurrent of acidity. It’s also warm, with a sticky sweetness that’s unusual in Taylor. This needs time to integrate; it may prove a long-lived vintage.
