Pretty violet and red currant flavors dominate this fresh, fruity, silky style. Very suave midpalate, featuring accents of raspberry preserves. Drink now through 2040.-K.M.

Taylor’s Quinta de Vargellas 2012 has a much more straight-laced bouquet compared to the Fonseca Guimaraens as you might expect. However it is well defined with dusky blackberry, mulberry, dark chocolate and wet stone aromas that expand in the glass over the course of one hour. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with a taut line of acidity keeping everything linear. There is superb tension and focus here, not enormous depth but an almost effervescent finish that lends this Vargellas an approachability difficult to fend off. Probably best to just give in.

Wine maker notes
Single-quinta, or single-vineyard, vintage Porto is produced only in exceptional years in which a general vintage is not declared. Quinta de Vargellas, celebrated as one of the top 100 vineyards in the world, has been part of the Taylor Fladgate estate for more than a century. It has the highest percentage of old vines of any quinta in the Douro, with 60% over 75 years old. All grapes undergo the traditional foot treading method, ensuring their fullest expression. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Following two years in wood, the wines are bottled unfiltered and will continue maturing for decades.
