Taylor's Quinta de Vargellas Vintage 2012
Opaque ruby black core with vivid purple rim. The nose is fine and delicate, pure woodland fruit aromas combining with notes of wild herbs and gum cistus and discreet hints of vanilla. The floral scents which are the hallmark of Vargellas are in evidence, the characteristic violet fragrances combining with delicate blossom and wild herb notes. A current of very clean, vibrant berry fruit flavour flows through the palate from start to finish. Typically, lean, wiry tannins emerge on the mid-palate and provide plenty of grip and an attractive touch of austerity. A wonderfully fine and harmonious vintage port, with every element in its place.
