    Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 1945
    bn, hbsl, lnl, crc
    Bottle (1)
    Provenance: The following wines are the property of a Southern California gentleman who is also a frequent consignor to several of our other categories. Wines removed from 3 separate temperature controlled professional facilities.

    "Taylor's 1945 Fladgate Vintage Port has a deeper color than the '45 Graham. The aromatics are detailed with remnants of red fruit, wild mint, Cuban cigars and pencil box that seem to flourish with aeration, gaining more intensity with each swirl of the glass. The palate is exquisitely balanced and poised with perfect acidity. It does not quite possess the "Doric" pillars of the stentorian '48 Taylor's, but you could argue that this might offer more subtlety and finesse. Hints of raspberry, cedar, marjoram and maraschino cherries that remain quite linear and correct. This is a "serious" Port in keeping with the style of Taylor's, a Port that demands your respect. Perhaps the '45 Graham has more personality but the '45 Taylor's has the gravitas." (97 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, July 2015)
