A big wine with superb balance, a shining example of this exuberantly fruity vintage. Deep ruby, with violets and coffee on the nose, full-bodied, with dried cherry flavors and plenty of tannin, balanced and long on the finish.

For The Love of Port | 97+

Medium garnet center that holds through to a pink edge. It’s hard not to fall in love with this VP! Sexy and sumptuous with all the stuffing. Complemented by bright acidity and gentle tannins which arrive late and together proffer a stylish structure. Stacked with strawberry, ripe raspberry and sweet figs; a Port that’s unctuous to roll around in your mouth, exhibiting great precision. The finish carries it home and proves this 1963 has years of life ahead of it. Stellar! Drink now through 2023.

Buying Guide - 2nd Edition (1989) | 95

This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. Their tawnys are also among the very best, though somewhat expensive. The 1963 is quite fabulous yet still seemingly capable of developing for another decade or more.
