What the experts say...
Taylor's 1992 Vintage Port is unquestionably the greatest young port I have ever tasted. It represents the essence of what vintage port can achieve. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up fabulously intense aromas of minerals, cassis, blackberries, licorice, and spices, as well as extraordinary purity and penetration. Yet this is still an unformed and infantile wine. If Chateau Latour made a late-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, I suspect it might smell like this. In the mouth, the wine is out of this world, displaying layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits backed by well-integrated tannin and structure. This is a massive, magnificently rich, full-bodied port that will be far more flattering in its youth than were such Taylors as the 1983, 1977, or 1970. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineated by the wine's formidable structure. This monumental 30-50 year port is a must purchase for port aficionados!
This Vintage port is only produced in excellent years. It is a blend of wines from the Taylor House’s three domains: Quinta de Vargellas, Quinta de Terra Feita and Quinta Junco. Following the harvests, the wines are raised in oak casks and tasted at their second Spring. If the quality is exceptional, they are kept in the final blend. The wines can be a little austere in their youth and need some time to express their full potential. They can be aged for decades.
Taylor is one of the oldest and most iconic port brands. Taylor was founded in 1692, and established itself in Porto and the Douro Valley and became a reference for port lovers worldwide. It produces wines renowned for their longevity and potency, but also their aromatic subtlety.
