Taylor Fladgate, Quinta de Vargellas, Vintage Port, 2005, 1/2 Bottle


A fruit-forward Port with less power than is the norm from this estate. Elegance, richness and sweetness with a bountiful nose. Blackberry, dark cherry and plum combine with violets, herbs and spice.

The 2005 vintage Port of Taylor Fladgate's Quinta de Vargellas has been described as having more upfront fruit as well as being less obviously powerful than other examples from this estate. It is possibly more elegant, richer and sweeter with a prodigious nose. Vivid and intense, this port offers ripe blackberry, dark cherry and plum along with violets, herbs and spice. This is a luscious port, pure and vibrant with very good structure.
Although drinking very well indeed at the moment this wine will continue to develop and, if stored carefully, will drink until at least 2026.

In years such as this when Taylor Fladgate fails to declare a vintage the port wine from this estate is released under the name Quinta de Vargellas, one of the most highly prized of all port vineyards. Compared by many to the vineyard of Ch. Latour in Bordeaux for its sheer depth and quality Quinta de Vargellas, purchased between 1893 and 1896, is one of the highest vineyards in the Douro which does an excellent job of moderating the high heat in the summer.
