Taylor’s Quinta de Vargellas 1998

Written by neal on June 10th, 2010

Vintage: 1998
Type: Port
Country: Portugal – Douro

This dessert wine comes from the Duro region of Portugal. It is what I call a semi-vintage port, as the Quintas tend to be produced in years that a classic vintage is not declared. A Quinta is a specific farm/estate meaning that the wine has come from one place.

We enjoyed this wine over Christmas with friends and it was spectacular.  If you enjoy port, then you’ll love this wine as it was incredible.  A heavy bouquet of berries and plums with a smooth sweet taste and a finish that lasted for minutes.
