Taylor Fladgate Very Old Single Harvest Port 1969

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalI tasted the 1969 alongside the 1970, and it is much more fiery and a little less opulent. The nose is intense with honey and caramel, this time with more resin and cinnamon spice flecked with dried herbs and tobacco. You will be surprised by the touch of acidity after all these years, lifting the back end, further intensifying the figgy, raisiny aftertaste. A complex wine that in this year is best suited to port enthusiasts.Tasted: 26 November 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 299.99 BCLS Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
