Taylor's Port, 1972

TAYLOR's GOLDEN AGE 50 YEAR OLD TAWNY PORT

Blended from rare wood-aged ports matured for five decades in oak casks, Taylor's Golden Age is a special collector's edition port released in very limited quantities.

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.
