1980 Taylor Vintage Port

SKU #980181 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1980 Taylor's Vintage Port has a deep, clear garnet colour. The nose is very backward, quite austere and conservative with notes of cherry and raspberry leaf, a touch of cigar box developing with aeration. It perhaps lacks a little joie-de-vivre, especially when compared to vintages in the 1970s. The palate is attractive though, with notes of raspberry, plum, white pepper, blood orange and a touch of apricot. This 1980 has good acidity but plays it safe, unwilling to take chances. Yet there is perceptible lushness on the finish with black plum notes despite lacking the precision of the great vintages. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

Outer quote mark Shaded deep garnet. Intense and vibrant with backbone and so much more concentration and sweetness. Firm and confident still. Still some tannin and nice balance. Great for drinking now. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2022)
