For many, Taylor's is the archetypal Port house and its wines the quintessential Ports. Established over three centuries ago in 1692, Taylor's is one of the oldest of the founding Port houses. It is dedicated entirely to the production of Port wine and in particular to its finest styles. As an independent company whose success is inseparable from that of the Douro Valley, Taylor remains committed to protecting this beautiful region by practicing viticulture which is economically and environmentally sustainable. The future of the Douro Valley and its unique environment is also the future of Port, one of the world's great classic wines and an irreplaceable part of human heritage.

TASTING NOTES:
Deep purple black colour with magenta highlights. Classic black fruit aromas of cherry and cassis provide a dense and impenetrable backdrop for wild scents of mint, resin and gumcistus. On the palate the same intense black fruit character merges with rich dark flavours of and liquorice and chocolate. The tannins are muscular but well integrated and the wine finishes with an explosion of berry fruit and spice.
- Winemaker: David Guimaraens
- Winemaking: Single Quinta Vintage Ports are made in exactly the same way as the iconic Taylor's ‘declared' Vintage Ports. In certain years when a Taylor's Vintage is not declared, Single Quinta Vintage Ports may be made from the individual produce of the firm's estates, Quinta de Vargellas and Quinta de Terra Feita. Only very small quantities are made and only in very good years. Many experts believe Taylor's Single Quinta Vintage Ports to be better than other companies' declared years. The name of Taylor's is more of an assurance than the year. Single Quinta Vintage Ports are generally earlier maturing than the Classic Taylor's Vintage Ports and are ready to drink from ten years, but will go on developing for another twenty years or so.
- Grape Varieties: Old Vines.
- Food Pairing: Vintage Ports are after meal drinks. Take them with cheese like Stilton or Gorgonzola. But you can also incorporate them into a meal, combining for instance a Steak au Poivre with a young Vintage.
- Store and Serve Advices: Should be opened two hours before serving and decanted. Serve between 17º and 18º C. Store the bottle on its side, in a cool, dry and dark place.

4/5

Center purple-black as Chinese ink, with narrow violet halo. From the first moment the nose is drawn into a complex and powerful vortex of dense and creamy aromas of blackberry, raspberry and cassis merging with subtle notes of rock rose and mint. This is an elegant Vintage Port with its extraordinary quality of fruit, combining power with refinement and complexity. The coarse textured tannins provide body and structure and the palate is full of excellent concentrated black fruit flavor that flows into the long finish.
