An exceptionally fine old tawny blend, aged for an average of 10 years in oak casks. Elegant and smooth, combining delicate wood notes and rich mellow fruit, it is bottled for immediate drinking. Excellent with soft cheeses such as brie; and a superb dessert wine, particularly with dishes made with coffee or almonds, Taylor 10 Year Old Tawny is delicious served lightly chilled at the end of the meal.
Producer
The origins of Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman lie in the 1670s, with Job Bearsley, an English merchant in Minho. Bearsley’s initial activities were in the wool trade, and the ”4XX” logo, originally his woolmark, was branded on bales of wool, and later, casks of Port wine, for shipment. The firm was officially founded in 1692, and Bearsley moved his offices to Oporto; this date places Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman as one of Oporto’s oldest Port houses. Bearsley’s son Peter was the first Englishman, in the early 1700s, to venture into the primitive reaches of the Upper Douro to purchase wines. Another son, Bartholomew, acquired the first British-owned property in the Douro in 1744, the Lugar das Lages. Located at Salgueiral, close to the old town of Regua, and including the 18th-century Casa dos Alambiques, it is still among Taylor Fladgate’s operative holdings.


Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Lean and quite youthful in style, with crunchy strawberry fruit on the nose and palate, charged with more than just a touch of spicy tannins on a heady finish.
Seductive aromas of roasted hazelnuts and raisins. The delectable palate is a wave of flavors including salted caramel, baking spice, apricots, nuts and red cherry with a striking balance between sweet and savory. Ends with a long sumptuous finish. ” (Jun 2013)
