Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2000

$84

Fresh and sleek, with cassis, cherry paste and linzer torte flavors that drive along nicely, picking up red licorice, alder and briar notes along the way. The anise- and spice-infused finish has focus and energy. This is rock-solid and nearly at peak.—Blind 2000 Vintage Port retrospective (March 2021). Best from 2024 through 2040.

95 Beautiful aromas of honeysuckle, violets, citrus and berries, plus hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied and chewy, with refined tannins and a long finish. Lasts for minutes on the palate. An elegant, yet powerful and fruity style of young Taylor. Best after 2012. —JS

BT Wonderfully floral in the nose, with loads of violets and crushed fruit. Full-bodied and very balanced. Medium-sweet, with firm and polished tannins and a long, fruity finish. Very tight and compacted. An elegant, yet powerful and fruity style of young Taylor. Score Range: 95-98 —JS
