1977 Taylor Vintage Port (pushed cork, very high shoulder fill)

SKU #1168967 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Good ruby color still. The nose is fresh, with lots of crushed berry and plum, with a hint of piecrust. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a caressing texture. This delivers loads of complex fruit and spiciness. Medium-sweet. A beauty. Will improve for decades, but why wait? '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Drink now. (Web-2008) Inner quote mark

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. Their tawnys are also among the very best, though somewhat expensive. The 1977 has consistently been at the top of my list of vintage ports in this great vintage, although the Dow, Graham, and Fonseca are equally splendid. It is a mammoth, opaque, statuesque vintage port of remarkable depth and power, but is should not be touched before 2000. Inner quote mark (1/1989)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The most prominently floral wine in the vertical, but that delicacy is amply backed by plush chocolate and dried fruit flavors. The finish is deceptively soft and welcoming, but still shows great backbone and the ability to go many more years. Inner quote mark (2/2007)
