The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2014 with 105.23 grams per liter of residual sugar. Easily the 10 with the most weight in the Fladgate group's lineup this issue, it is a rather powerful 10 year old Tawny with plenty of pop, the biggest and baddest of the trio (Fonseca, Croft and this). There is very fine concentration of flavor for a 10 year old Tawny. If I had a quibble, the alcohol shows at times, especially early on and rather notably when drunk a little too warm. (Around 60 degrees Fahrenheit is a lot better than room temperature most of the time, to be sure, not just here.) Overall, the weight, complexity, mouth feel and grip on the finish still make this my favorite of the group of 10s submitted by Taylor Fladgate this issue, although it's close and there are some pros and cons. This comes with a bar top cork, i.e., not intended to be aged (although it most certainly can hold a couple of decades barring cork failures). (MS)
This very complete aged tawny has all the right nuts and fruit characters that show a Port that still looks back to its fruity origins. The style is ripe, full and sweet, a mellow wine that only hints at the spirit behind it. (RV)
Juicy and focused, offering dried cherry, fig and bergamot notes inlaid with red licorice and fruitcake flavors that marry the flattering and racy sides. (JM)
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. (Panel Tasting)
RS 103 g/l. Reddish fox red. Spicy and round. Some nuttiness and dried peel. Simple and fresh. Big and brawny. Lots of obvious sweetness. 17/20 points. (JR)
The 10-Year Old Tawny from Taylor Fladgate, bottled in 2017, has a light earthy bouquet with hints of smoke, cedar and clove, missing a little depth of fruit compared to the 20-Year Old. The palate is a little sharp on the entry, with touches of strawberry mixed with marmalade, clove, allspice and marjoram. Gentle and nicely focused on the finish. Tasted at the Big Fortified Tasting in London. (NM)
