2009 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port

SKU #1077395 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is solid as a rock with firm and chewy tannins. Has grip. Full-bodied and off dry with gorgeous fruit. Dried fruit such as raisin and prune too. Long and very intense. Gorgeous. Great bottle. Inner quote mark (11/2014)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Now with a couple years in bottle, I am erring to the Taylor’s over the Fonseca (although these can always change!) The Taylor’s show more delineation and refinement with pure black currant, cassis, pencil box, hints of marzipan and a hint of dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied and sumptuous with super-fine tannins, very pure blackberry and boysenberry notes interlaced with cedar, dried fig and a touch of black pepper on the beautifully refined finish. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Taylor Fladgate's vintage Ports are always among the legendary wines. This hugely structured wine keeps the dense, perfumed tradition very much alive. Along with the power, it also has wonderful fruit, bursting out with blackberry jam. Even with all the fruitiness, it needs to age for decades. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2012)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intensely fruity and dripping with luscious dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors, leading to touches of sandalwood. Medium-grained tannins carry through to the lush, spice- and chocolate-filled finish. This shows fine grip and balance, with a very modern feel. (KM) Inner quote mark (4/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very ripe, expressive nose offers cassis, black cherry, licorice and exotic herbs. Hugely rich, thick and powerful in the context of the vintage, but with lovely purity and a saline complexity to the flavors of crushed black cherry and boysenberry. This will need some time in bottle to harmonize its brandy but has the spine for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2012)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Sheer black, this has the toughness and power that often marks a young Taylor. One side of the tannins is as hard as nails, the other suppler. It’s a grand wine with intoxicating richness, running cool on an undercurrent of acidity. It’s also warm, with a sticky sweetness that’s unusual in Taylor. This needs time to integrate; it may prove a long-lived vintage. Inner quote mark (12/2011)
