Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: Reviewer, Neal Martin - A deep black inky core with deep ruby rim. The nose dose not have the definition or the ripeness of the -92 yet it is cut from the same cloth. Scents of pure blackberry, blueberry, liquorice, raisin with a touch of dried blood and a sense of being earthier than the previous two declarations. The palate is medium-bodied rather than full-, but has lovely balance and a bewitching sensuality. I love the sense of earthiness to this port and it is adorned with a cohesive, very refined finish. Superb. Tasted November 2007.

This is rather flashy for Taylor, with plenty of upfront appeal to its floral, spicy aromas and gobs of fruit. Its very lush and soft on the palate, almost overloaded with blackberries and plums, then firms up and begins to show that Taylor reserve on the dusty finish. Hold.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Saturated black/purple-colored, with stunning aromatics of blueberries, blackberries, licorice, and iron, this is one of the stars of the vintage. Extremely full-bodied, with silky tannin, spectacular concentration and purity, multiple flavor levels, and a more evolved, forward personality than Taylor's other top vintages, this is an exquisite yet precocious 1997 vintage port. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Portugal
The coastal country of Portugal is best known for its fortified wines, Port and Madeira. Port is so-named for Oporto, the coastal town where it is produced, not as a reference to the country name. Present-day Portuguese wine production began in the 15th century, with fortification of local wines beginning in the 18th century. The Douro Valley, Dão and Vinhos Verdes regions produce some of the better known Portuguese wines, including reds and whites from local indigenous grapes. View all our items from Portugal
