The refined, finely structured Taylor style marks this ripe, full wine, which marries concentrated black currant and plum fruit to intense impressions of licorice, spice and dried fruit in a velvety, elegant texture.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 86 points - The nose and palate is rich with prune and chocolate character. This sweet, luscious, port also exhibits baking spice aromas. Pair with blue cheese or chocolate covered nuts.  (May 2012)

Wine Enthusiast 91 points - For freshness, it is worth buying this young LBV. It has all the structure needed, a dark chocolate undertone, but it is the fresh black fruits and the lift of acidity that make it so attractive. R.V.
Initially it seems very dry, but there is freshness as well. The wine has a sweet, jelly core, with soft tannins, well balanced. Raisins and black figs dominate, with the aftertaste bringing a firming of tannins and structure. Powerful and impressive. R.V. (Nov 2007)

Late Bottled Vintage 2005: Deep ruby colour. The elegant nose combines fresh and intense blackcurrant and cherry aromas with subtle notes of liquorice and spice. On the palate, the rich and concentrated black fruit flavour is supported by firm well-integrated tannins. True to the Taylor style, the wine shows great balance and finesse.
