Wine Spectator | Rating: 98There is an explosion of fruit and tannins in the mouth but at the same time this wine is in total harmony. Deep dark ruby, with blackberries and violets on the nose, full-bodied, with masses of blackberry flavors, full, hard tannins and a very long finish. Will age for decades.Author: James Suckling
Buying Guide - 2nd Edition (1989) | Rating: 96This 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 1977 has consistently been at the top of my list of vintage ports in this great vintage, although the Dow, Graham, and Fonseca are equally splendid. It is a mammoth, opaque, statuesque vintage port of remarkable depth and power, but is should not be touched before 2000.Author: Robert Parker
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17V slight TCA on first bottle. Second bottle: Lots of spice and still some red fruit. Something a bit like hairspray. Just a little dusty on the palate. Less pure and the heat of the alcohol more evident so harsher than the Graham's. Not convinced that even this second bottle is in perfect condition. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW

Self | Rating: 19Ruby red, but already signs of brown on the edge. Strong aromas of dried figs, followed by orange peel, flowers, and ripe cherries. Dried plums and dates on the palate, and a hint of licorice. Powerful finish that lasts for 30 seconds.Author: acyso
