In 1692, an important chapter in the history of Port began. Job Bearsley, an English merchant, travelled to Portugal to venture into the wine business, founding the company we now know as Taylor Fladgate. Today, it is one of the oldest and most renowned Port producers, and its Ports are considered amongst the finest in the world.
The Ten Year Old Tawny is a personal favorite of Robert Parker who feels t hat Taylor's tawny ports are the best of their type. It's ripe, juicy, silky, and sweet offering flavors of raisins, fig, dried cherry, mocha, licorice, nuts, and fruitcake. Mellow in texture with solid acidity and a long, focused finish. A superb dessert wine, particularly with dishes made with chocolate, coffee or almonds.
