Taylor's Port, 2008

Quinta Terra Feita Vintage Port

Description and Reviews:
From the very good 2008 vintage, the Taylors Terra Feita displays an Inky purple black centre with a narrow violet rim. From the first moment the nose is drawn into a complex and powerful vortex of dense creamy blackberry, raspberry and cassis aromas fused with subtle notes of gumcistus and mint. This is classic Vintage Port with its extraordinary quality of fruit, combining power with refinement and complexity. The thickly textured tannins provide body and structure and the palate is brimming with fine concentrated black fruit flavour which flows over into the long finish.
Like those of Vargellas, the wines of the beautiful old property of Terra Feita are an essential component of the Taylor’s Vintage Port blend. The wines of Terra Feita express sensuous hedonism and earthiness. Their dense blackberry and cassis fruitiness is overlaid with wild herbal aromas, tarry notes of liquorice and tobacco and a palate crammed with thick mouth filling tannins. It is the harmony and tension between the contrasting styles of these two great properties which fundamentally define the character of Taylor’s Vintage Ports.
