International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 106

($81) Bright deep ruby. Brooding, complex aromas of cassis, minerals, graphite, licorice and damp earth; distinct hints of surmaturite. Dense, chewy and powerful, with a saline impression of extract. At once strong and seamless, with penetrating, youthfully primary black fruit flavors that really expand and reverberate in the mouth and on the very long, gripping finish. Exhilarating late note of dark chocolate. By no means a painfully backward Taylor, but structured to evolve for at least 25 to 30 years. (Kobrand, Inc., New York, NY)

Mid crimson. Floral (violet?) nose. Very luscious and lifted. All in the air rather than a dense or concentrated fruitiness. Ethereal and pretty dry. Not the most luscious. Medium length. Some tar and liquorice.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker

Among the most saturated blue/purple/black-colored examples of the vintage, Taylor's 2000 tastes like a young vintage of Chateau Latour on steroids. Aromas of graphite, blackberry liqueur, creme de cassis and smoke jump from the glass. Spectacularly concentrated and enormously endowed, with sweetness allied to ripe tannin, decent acidity, and layer upon layer of fruit and extract, this is the leading candidate for the port of the vintage.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Beautiful aromas of honeysuckle, violets, citrus and berries, plus hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied and chewy, with refined tannins and a long finish. Lasts for minutes on the palate. An elegant, yet powerful and fruity style of young Taylor. 14,000 cases made.

For The Love of Port Author: Roy Hersh Issue: Issue 32

Opaque ruby-violet color. Deeply extracted with sweet and concentrated blueberry and ripe boysenberry fruit with a back drop of chocolate. What’s not to love? This delivers on the palate with a fresh vibrancy that lends to superlatives. Huge tannins arrive in the later innings and lead to an enormous finish. Does young vintage Port really get any better than this? Enjoy during the rest of your years on earth and leave a few bottles for your great grandchildren to enjoy.

Tasted over a 24 hour period. Opaque purple black colored wine with a few thin moderate to deeply pigmented legs. A full but slightly heated nose of pepper, plum, some anise, and rose. Sharp on the attack but the wine turns surprisingly smooth during its somewhat abbreviated finish. Simple in the mouth with relatively moderate tannins and excellent acidity. Not overly sweet with a slightly bitter edge. Attractive coffee flavors coupled with deep dark fruits. Rather forward for a vintage port; this wine needs a few decades to mature.
