    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    Reviewer, Robert Parker - The Hedonist's Gazette - I noticed the Chinese love to have both a sweet wine and a vintage port at the end of a meal, which is pretty much over-kill for me. However, I was blown away by the 2003 Taylors vintage port. I had enough left in me to appreciate the brilliant Kracher No. 7 Chardonnay from the 1999 vintage, which was stunning with the coconut sorbet with toffee sauce and lemongrass bubbles. Yet drinking it was touched with sadness as I thought of the recent and premature death of its 49-year old maker, Alois (Luis) Kracher. The Great Wall of China, Black Tie Dinner. May 2008.

    Reviewer, Pierre Rovani -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.

    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.

    Reviewer, Neal Martin - An opaque black/purple colour. The nose is much ripe and more extrovert and flamboyant than the 2000 with cassis, fig, blueberry and macerated black cherries. An opulent, vivacious palate with sufficient acidity to cut through those thick chewy black fruits. Ostentatious? Not really, but it is imbued with a precocious, lascivious finish that just coats your mouth in tannins. A port that should come with a toothbrush (but who would be foolish enough to uncork this with forty years?) Fabulous. Tasted November 2007.
