Quinta de Vargellos (Taylor) Vintage Port, 2002

I drank this side by side with the LBV of Taylor (below). The quality of vintage vs late bottled port was apparent, although both were excellent.

Deep and dark. Lovely bouquet: black fruits, spice and flowers. Brighter and livelier than the LBV. Deep, deep, deep--just keeps getting better. I could sniff this wine all night. Plums and nutmeg again on the palate. A full range of flavors and, oh, so smooth! Superb fruit presence and a long, satisfying finish. This wine is drinking beautifully right now.
