Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18Dark crimson. Great peppery nose. Very appetising indeed. Rich and yet overlaid by lovely zippiness. So Taylor! Just a bit dry on the end. This demands so much time. It will never be the sweetest (drier than the 2009) nor most concentrated. Still pretty tannic and dry.Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The Taylor's 2007 is in a rather odd phase at the moment, its sweet, marzipan-tinged bouquet tending to dominate the ripe black fruit. The palate is much more controlled, with very fine tannins, supremely well-judged acidity and a very elegant, composed finish that has more purity and poise than the Fonseca. I would give bottles another decade to allow the aromatics to calm down. Tasted May 2013.Author: Neal Martin
Wine Spectator | Rating: 96This is a giant of a wine lurking behind fresh flowers and ripe fruit. Starts off in a friendly way, then takes hold of the palate, with intense blueberry and blackberry fruit and chewy yet fine tannins. Mouthpuckering, but impressively complex and long. Really kicks in on the finish. The best Taylor since 1994. Best after 2020.Author: James Suckling
