90% opacity, dark purple. Very intense nose, strawberry and blackberry. Full, rich and very fruity mouthfeel. Medium level of tannin and medium coarseness. Blackberry and damson, acidity low-medium. Liked this one a lot.
80% opacity, dull red. redcurrant and green melon. Redcurrant, medium acidity mid palate, flavour intensity quite low, short finish. Tannins medium coarse, very dry. I must have been tasting something different to Alex and Simon!
75% opacity, dark ruby red. Wonderfully fragrant nose, strawberry, raspberry, cherry, lychee. Soft and smooth, tannins medium level and soft, fruit is rich - strawberry and raspberry. Acidity low-medium. Not a typical Taylor style at all I thought! Elegance rather than power.
80% opacity, dull red. Plummy nose. Smooth entry, flabby, little backbone. Medium tannins towards the finish, bit spiritous, not much of a finish. I thought this Port to be towards the bottom of the pecking order on the night.
