SCORES & TASTING NOTES

2005 Taylor's Quinta De Vargellas
*** 92 points Neil Martin ***
"A deep black/opaque hue. A very pure, well-defined nose of black cherries, cassis and plum with a certain “coolness” about it. The palate is full-bodied but for me just lacking a little definition and tension. But very pure again with notes of plum, liquorice, a hint of black pepper and quite a fleshy, supple finish. Very fine. Drinking 2015-2030." Neil martin Wine journal 2007.


2005 Taylor's Quinta De Terra Feita
*** 93 points Neil Martin ***
From the good 2005 vintage, the Taylors Terra Feita displays a Deep purple black colour with magenta highlights. Classic black fruit aromas of cherry and cassis provide a dense and impenetrable backdrop for wild scents of mint, resin and gumcistus. On the palate the same intense black fruit character merges with rich dark flavours of and liquorice and chocolate. The tannins are muscular but well integrated and the wine finishes with an explosion of berry fruit and spice.
Comparing against Vargellas it is amazing how different (and therefore complementary) they are.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
The association of Vintage Port with a mature blue cheese such as Stilton is one of the great classic food and wine combinations. The soft buttery texture, mellow character and piquancy of the cheese are perfectly matched by the powerfully majestic flavours of the Vintage Port. Other blue, buttery, mellow and slighty piquant cheeses to consider would be: Cashel Blue, Roquefort, Gorgonzola and Saint Agur Blue.
