    This is fantastic, young port, a true representative of both the house style at Taylor as well as the special vineyard site that is the Quinta de Vargellas. This is a vineyard in the rugged, eastern Douro Superior, where incredibly hot days are tempered by cooler nights than in the rest of the /Douro, resulting in wines of great fragrance, freshness and intensity. While Vargellas definitely marks the finest of Taylor's wines in broad based declared vintages (most recently 2011), it is in the very fine, non declared years such as 2015 where you have something truly special in a single quinta Port bottling. Deeply vinous and floral on the nose, the palate of freshly plucked wild blackberries and schist/granite minerality, with a markedly less sweet impression than many other houses, is what makes this wine special. If you feel like you need to wait too long on your 2011's (or even your 2007's or '94 for that matter), then enjoy these now for their lovely fragrance and sheer power, or stash away for another decade for something really special to emerge.

    Classic Taylor's structure. Pure blackberry fruit; so beautiful on the palate. Wave-after-wave of fruit with fabulous complexity and harmony of fruit and tannins. Lots of berry fruit along with subtle spice notes and grippy tannins give this wine excellent length and body. A very impressive Quinta.
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2057
