Product Overview

The non-vintage Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Porto is deep brick in color with an amber rim. The rich and elegant nose combines aromas of ripe berry fruit with a delicate nuttiness and subtle mellow notes of chocolate, butterscotch, and fine oak wood. It's smooth and silky on the palate and full of ripe figgy, jammy flavors which persist on the long finish.

Varietal Composition: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Amarela
Appellation: Douro DOC
Aging: Average of 10 years in neutral oak
Residual Sugar: 105.23 g/L

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Juicy and focused, offering dried cherry, fig and bergamot notes inlaid with red licorice and fruitcake flavors that marry the flattering and racy sides. Drink now through 0. 45,200 cases made, 13,000 cases imported." -JM, 6/30/18

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This very complete aged tawny has all the right nuts and fruit characters that show a Port that still looks back to its fruity origins. The style is ripe, full and sweet, a mellow wine that only hints at the spirit behind it." -RV, 12/1/14

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2014 with 105.23 grams per liter of residual sugar. Easily the 10 with the most weight in the Fladgate group's lineup this issue, it is a rather powerful 10 year old Tawny with plenty of pop, the biggest and baddest of the trio (Fonseca, Croft and this). There is very fine concentration of flavor for a 10 year old Tawny. If I had a quibble, the alcohol shows at times, especially early on and rather notably when drunk a little too warm. (Around 60 degrees Fahrenheit is a lot better than room temperature most of the time, to be sure, not just here.) Overall, the weight, complexity, mouth feel and grip on the finish still make this my favorite of the group of 10s submitted by Taylor Fladgate this issue, although it's close and there are some pros and cons. This comes with a bar top cork, i.e., not intended to be aged (although it most certainly can hold a couple of decades barring cork failures)." -MS, 12/30/15
