WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2012
In the full Fonseca style, this aged tawny shows both rich fruit and a more serious wood-aged character. Good acidity follows the sweet initial taste, broadening into ripe flavors of nut, plum jelly, and a final crisp acidity.

JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/6/2023
Quinta Do Noval’s NV 10 Year Tawny offers up a semi-opaque ruby hue as well as a tons of cigar wrapper, chocolate, espresso, and candied black olive aromas, just to name a few. It’s complex, medium to full-bodied, and rounded on the palate, with plenty of fruit as well as complexity. Aged in oak in a solera system for multiple years, this is in a sweet spot for me, with a solid mix of sweet fruit and some complex, spicy, tertiary nuances. (Jeb Dunnuck)
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2014
This dry, balanced aged tawny is both fruity and showing good aging characters. Red fruits are cut with acidity and shaped by the old wood and spice flavors. It has a delicious, ripe aftertaste.

Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Port

NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 71779

SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2023
This has a nice racy edge to the mix of slightly dried red cherry and raspberry fruit, backed by red tea and singed vanilla. Shows good tension from start to finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2018
Juicy and focused, offering dried cherry, fig and bergamot notes inlaid with red licorice and fruitcake flavors that marry the flattering and racy sides. Drink now through . 45,200 cases made.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Dec 2015
The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2014 with 105.23 grams per liter of residual sugar. Easily the 10 with the most weight in the Fladgate group’s lineup this issue, it is a rather powerful 10 year old Tawny with plenty of pop, the biggest and baddest of the trio (Fonseca, Croft and this). There is very fine concentration of flavor for a 10 year old Tawny. If I had a quibble, the alcohol shows at times, especially early on and rather notably when drunk a little too warm. (Around 60 degrees Fahrenheit is a lot better than room temperature most of the time, to be sure, not just here.) Overall, the weight, complexity, mouth feel and grip on the finish still make this my favorite of the group of 10s submitted by Taylor Fladgate this issue, although it’s close and there are some pros and cons. This comes with a bar top cork, i.e., not intended to be aged (although it most certainly can hold a couple of decades barring cork failures).
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2014
This very complete aged tawny has all the right nuts and fruit characters that show a Port that still looks back to its fruity origins. The style is ripe, full and sweet, a mellow wine that only hints at the spirit behind it.
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2008
Soft and glistening with a light rosewater perfume, this delicate Tawny balances sweet cherry and wood flavors with plenty of acidity so the wine finishes clean.

Sandeman Old Tawny Porto Aged 10 Years

NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 71217

SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2016
Rich and supple, offering creamy flavors of hazelnut, Christmas pudding and ripe cherry, with cocoa powder notes. Lush and spicy on the long, ripe finish. Drink now. 1,800 cases imported.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2021
Stylish cherry, plum and dried anise notes have a racy feel, ending with a late echo of dried orange peel on the finish. Drink now. 5,460 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 2/1/2009
This has a fine bite, offering its richness on the edge of a knife. Wood and fruit tannins are very evident, giving the concentration a dry, fresh core, over which dried fruit flavors pass. It has some age to it, as if there are older wines in the blend.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
Notes of raspberry liqueur and coffee cake make this a dessert in a glass. Its bright caramel-apple flavors last on spicy warmth, referencing both the alcohol and the wood in which the wine aged. It’s balanced and would work as well with a savory caramelized-onion dish as it would with an unsweetened plum tart.

SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
Date, fig and mulled plum fruit flavors form this broad and juicy core. Cinnamon, black tea and hazelnut notes fill in the background. Shows some power, with the cut and drive for balance. Drink now. 30,000 cases made, 9,000 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2014
The wine is rich, ripe and fruity with good acidity as well as a bite of spirit and old-wood aging. It is well balanced, keeping the freshness of a 10-Year-Old while also showing good signs of its wood aging. Just what a 10-Year-Old should be.
WS8787 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2004
Fruit-leather flavors of dried apricot combine with a sweeter tone, like baba au rhum. this is a dark tones, pleasantly woody wine for dried fruit or nuts.

WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 2/1/2019
Poised by fresh fruit and more mature wood-aged flavors, this Port is deliciously easy to drink. With touches of woodiness under the ripe, full and rich berry and raisin flavors, it can be drunk now.

Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage Porto

2017 / 750 ml.

Item #: 99343

WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2022
The Port, with its luscious texture and black fruits, is impressive and dense. Black fruits are given richness and spice by the spirit and the raisin flavors. With its light structure, it is ready to drink. (Roger Voss)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 2022
Inviting, with plum cake and steeped raisin and plum notes laced with licorice snap and fruitcake accents. There’s a solid spine for support, but this is approachable now. Try decanting or even giving a touch more time in the cellar. Drink now through 2026. 50,000 cases made, 25,000 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 10/22
A fresh, schist-driven LBV, this wine’s tannins are accommodating in their softness, but still buzzing with mineral tension and energy. The cherry fruit coasts past the tannins, sweet and pleasing with the acidity of sheep’s milk cheeses.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 4th Aug 2022
The 2017 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend bottled in 2022 with a bar-top cork and 113 grams per liter of residual sugar after six years in cask. (There will be no 2016 Graham’s LBV.) Elegant in the mid-palate (unlike its sibling, the Dow’s), this also has good structure, but it is a much better balanced wine. The big fruit of this fine vintage shines through, rendering this rather delicious. This has persistence and focus, plus all that tasty fruit. You can’t go wrong. (Mark Squires)

Bottled unfiltered so that it can age, this is a very fine Port. The tannins are now soft, fully integrated into the black fruits and mature texture. This wine is perfectly ready to drink. (Roger Voss)
