This is a Port of a Lifetime... Taylor Fladgate Vintage 2003 will age effortlessly for the next 50 years making it a must-have for collectors and/or parents with children born in 2003! Look for a classic Taylor nose, with exotic scents of violets, spices and intense dark berry fruits. The stylish and racy palate is currently displaying a tight fabric of tannins and concentrated grapey flavours which keep intensifying through the seemingly endless finish. This concentrated beauty can be decanted in its youth for explosive flavors or cellared for decades...

Wine Advocate The 2003 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port improved each time I raised it to my nose or mouth. It displays a black color and a salty, graphite-laced nose packed with sweet black fruits that is reminiscent of a stellar vintage of Chateau Latour. With air, notes of molasses, burnt sugar, spices, and jammy plums emanate from the glass. Full-bodied, hugely dense, immensely rich, as well as thick, this behemoth is also amazingly balanced and harmonious. Raisins, molasses, licorice, black cherries, plums, and a distinctive note of violets are found in its complex, seamless character. Its interminable finish reveals additional notes of chocolate, kirsch, red as well as black currants, dark cherries, and rose blossoms. Armed with exceptional power, depth, and purity, this Taylor will proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the finest ever crafted by the Fladgate Partnership. Projected maturity: 2035-2060. Score: 98. —Pierre Rovani, October 2005.

Wine Enthusiast Inky purple in color, this youngest Taylor vintage Port boasts a floral, wonderfully open and appealing bouquet, backed by layers of rich fruit. What makes this wine extra special is the seductive texture-somewhere between creamy and syrupy-and ample length. Hold. Score: 97. —Joe Czerwinski, February 01, 2007.

Wine Spectator Lovely aromas of currants, blackberries and licorice. Full-bodied, with medium sweetness and layers of ripe, round, velvety tannins. Flavorful finish. More round and refined than from barrel. Best after 2014. 13,000 cases made. Score: 94. —James Suckling, April 30, 2006.
