Taylor 40 Year Old Tawny Port

SKU #1032715 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The NV 40 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled with a bar top cork in 2014. It comes in with 125 grams per liter of residual sugar. Big, weighty and mouth filling, this is an aromatic Tawny that finishes with acidity and tension. Gripping on the finish, its flavors become more interesting as long as it sits in the glass (or on your palate). It is not, perhaps, as sunny as the Fonseca, its sibling reviewed this issue, but it is denser and more gripping. Comparing to the Taylor 30 (also reviewed), I'm not sure I liked the 40 here all that much better. The 30 is a bit fleshier while this 40 is a bit more concentrated in flavor and aromatics. Perhaps some additional age also helped this 40 combat some of the aggression on the 30. They are both pretty fine, a difference of five to Midnight and five after, rather than night and day. It is still a fine experience and my favorite of the group. Don't drink it too warm. Room temperature is mostly too warm. The sweet spot for most tends to be 58-62 degrees Fahrenheit.

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Editors' Choice* A superb wine, elegance and weight combined magisterially. It has all the right mature flavors, ripe fruit, intense marmalade and concentration. This is a wine with a great reputation, and the taste doesn’t let that reputation down. Inner quote mark (8/2006)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Alluring, with a warm date and gently mulled fig and peach core gliding through, while light alder, bitter almond and candied ginger notes add sparkle and texture along the edges. Frankly sweet through the finish but with the energy for balance. Drink now. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Porto 40-Year-Old Tawny This wine's delicate apple and pear flavors finish on honeyed sweetness and wood spice, from nutmeg to cinnamon. Hints of butter brickle show off its long years in cask. An elegant after-dinner pour. Inner quote mark (12/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Amazingly fresh and broad on the nose, with lots of nuts, dried fruit, intense and length concentration and a rich mouthfeel with brisk finish. Cerebral, but easy to drink, with each sip lasting a long time. 17.5/20 points. (RH) Inner quote mark (7/2010)
