Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny
Port from Portugal | Alc: 20% – Smooth

Winemaker’s notes:
Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny is an exceptionally fine old tawny blend, aged for 10 years in oak casks. Elegant and smooth, combining delicate wood notes and rich mellow fruit, it is bottled for immediate drinking. A superb dessert wine, particularly with dishes made with chocolate, coffee or almonds. Russet in color with a lovely balance of fruit and nut flavors and a crisp, persistent finish

Critical Acclaim:
“It is my opinion that Taylor’s tawny ports are the best of their type. When tasted against other tawnys, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length. The Ten Year Old Tawny is a personal favorite, as well as the best bargain among these ports.” 93 Pts – Wine Advocate

“A refined and subtle Port. Outstanding. Lovely aromas of flan, caramel and egg custard with a hint of toffee. Medium-bodied, with a light sweetness and a refined, clean finish. Tastes older than 10 years.” 91 Pts – Wine Spectator

“This is a great, fresh, young style of wine, with figs and bitter marmalade flavors. There’s a touch of orange peel, a hint of vanilla and very ripe, delicious fruit.” 91 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
