Dusty, perfumed tannins are suspended in a ripe and fruity wine, its damson skin texture given an extra boost by tannins. Very dark, concentrated wine, full of character.
With its dried raisin aromas and fresh, sweet, fruity character, this is a great example of Reserve Ports. It has a touch of tannin to go with the soft fruits, and flavors of ripe black figs and dark plums. First Estate is produced at Taylor Fladgate's original vineyard at Regua, which was bought in 1744.
