Estate Notes

Taylor’s Quinta de Vargellas 1995 was purchased in its original wooden case, and of all the single vineyard quinta ports, Vargellas stands out; a great value.

Taylor’s vintage Ports are renowned for their massive structure, concentration of flavour and distinctively masculine style. This great Port house is also renowned for being amongst the longest lived of all ports. Taylor's, which remains an independent family-run business since its inception around 300 years ago, is also the market brand leader. It is one of the earliest shippers to acquire vineyards to produce the wine themselves, rather than merely buying from winemakers and then maturing it, thus ensuring a name synonymous with quality.

Reviews

"A big, voluptuous wine--decadence in a bottle. Sports a brilliant magenta, purple color and intense aromas of plums and berries with hints of flowers. It's medium- to full-bodied, with a chunky, velvety-tannin mouthfeel and a long aftertaste of chocolate and fruit. Lovely." Wine Spectator
