Taylor 20 Year Old Tawny Port

SKU #1151255 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 A complex, wood aged wine, this 20-year-old has a perfumed, dry style. Walnut and spice flavors blend together with the spirit and mature acidity. It’s rich, with just the right amount of age.  (6/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Rich, with a spicy nose, this offers flavors of fig, dried apricot, mango and ginger. Complex and elegant, delivering concentrated crème brûlée and tropical fruit notes that linger on the vibrant and buttery finish.  (2/2014)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted at Taylor’s tawny seminar in London. The 20-Year Old tawny is initially a little reticent on the nose, mellow and refined with scents of dried beeswax, dried apricot, cumin and dried fig. The palate is very fine with good weight: touches of allspice and cardamom on the entry, building nicely with firm structure hidden under a silky veneer. Very fine tannins with hints of walnut and smoke towards the insistent, slightly honeyed finish. Excellent. Tasted October 2010. (NM)  (1/2011)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Luscious with butterscotch, fig and golden honey flavors, this is a fragrant, jasmine-scented Porto. The finish is a rush of yellow fruit sweetness, soft and nutty, classical in its balance of freshness and age. Pour it with fresh almonds at the end of a meal.  (12/2013)

Jancis Robinson

 Frosted bottle. Vegy, savoury, not that sweet and refined. Lots of fun. Silky smooth. (18/20 points)  (9/2014)

K&L Notes

Praise from Robert Parker: "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. Although I find the Thirty Year Old Tawny admirable, I prefer the richer, more vibrant Twenty Year Old Tawny." (02/1995)

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.


- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
