1995 Taylor "Quinta de Vargellas" Vintage Port

SKU #240050 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Brooding blueberry, cassis, licorice and mineral nose complicated by a whiff of smoked meat; easy to pick out as Taylor in a blind grouping. Very concentrated, palate-saturating black cherry and black raspberry flavor. Thick and round but vibrant and delineated. Impressive extract. Explosive finishing fruit goes on and on. A very powerful port, but much more accessible early than a classic vintage Taylor. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/1998)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *#10 of the Top 100 Wines of 1998*A big, voluptuous wine--decadence in a bottle. Sports a brilliant magenta, purple color and intense aromas of plums and berries with hints of flowers. It's medium- to full-bodied, with a chunky, velvety-tannin mouthfeel and a long aftertaste of chocolate and fruit. Lovely. Best after 2008. *#10 of the Top 100 Wines of 1998* (JS) Inner quote mark (4/1998)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The wine delivers a polished bouquet of black cherries, plums, chocolate, a touch of pepper and a fine base of soil. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and complex, with fine mid-palate depth, moderate tannins, and good length and grip on the finish. There is still a touch of spirit on the backend of the ’95 Vargellas, and this too is still quite a young bottle of port. (Drink between 2011-2030) Inner quote mark (12/2009)
