Taylor Fladgate 50 Year Old Tawny Port...$299.99
Golden Age 50
A bird of a different feather, this sports a range of date, mulled plum and persimmon fruit flavors that are curvaceous in feel, allied to a racy green tea and hazelnut spine. Picks up singed white sesame, walnut husk, alder smoke and sandalwood along the way. Reveals terrific tension between the viscous and nervy sides from start to finish. Drink now. From Portugal.—J.M.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Spectator

Taylor Fladgate Ports represent over three and a quarter centuries of family tradition that began with the foundation of Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman in 1692. A heritage of skill and experience passed down the generations ensures that every Taylor Fladgate Port is made to the highest standard. Blended from rare wood-aged ports matured for five decades in oak casks, Taylor Fladgate Golden Age is a special collector’s edition port released in very limited quantities.
This 50-year-old Tawny was sourced in the eastern reaches of the Douro Valley, location of many of the finest vineyard estates and traditional source of the most long-lasting wines. Prior to blending, the individual wines were aged in Taylor’s cellars in seasoned oak casks specially selected and set aside by the firm’s team of expert coopers.  After half a century in cask, this exceptional wine has reached its ‘Golden Age’ of maturity, the point at which it achieves perfect balance, a magical complexity and a seductive smoothness and density.  Taylor Fladgate Golden Very Age Old Tawny is the perfect wine with which to commemorate a half century, be it a 50th anniversary or a five-decade landmark.

Tasting Note
Chestnut, copper colour core with a light golden rim. The primary aromas are elegant, rich and very delicate. Notes of rum and raisin, clove, nutmeg and a hint of cracked black pepper. Prunes, quince and apricot dance on your palate as the zest of lemon and orange deliver a freshness of acidity to balance the richness of the wine.

Notes of scorched pineapple, passion fruit and lychee balance beautifully with the toasted coconut, almonds and butterscotch. The texture and weight of the wine wraps the palate and finishes bright, fresh and poised. The wine lingers for an eternity, beckoning you in for more.
