1991 Taylor "Quinta de Vargellas" Vintage Port
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Taylor Fladgate's 1991 Quinta de Vargellas is the finest Vargellas I have tasted. The opaque purple color is followed by aromatics that are more closed than most 1991s. In the mouth, it is a wine of extraordinary richness and brilliantly delineated components. This exceptionally rich, backward port possesses layer upon layer of fruit, a thick, chewy, unctuous texture, firm structure and tannin, and a finish that lasts for more than a minute. It is an exquisite port that will age for 25-30 years. (RP)
Starting to show bottle bouquet, with beautiful blackberry and tanned leather on the nose. Full-bodied, lightly sweet and very balanced. Long and silky. Just starting to drink very well, but has a long life ahead. Classy for a single quinta. '91/'92 Port retrospective. Best from 2006 through 2014.
