Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Another magnificent and finely-balanced old tawny blend of outstanding richness and complexity. This rare Port is traditionally enjoyed as a dessert wine or at the end of the meal. Ideal for summer drinking, Taylor's 20 Year Old Tawny may be served cool.
"Rich, with a spicy nose, this offers flavors of fig, dried apricot, mango and ginger. Complex and elegant, delivering concentrated creme brulee and tropical fruit notes that linger on the vibrant and buttery finish. Drink now. "
"Although this famous name has produced quite a light 20-year-old, that lightness is more than made up for by the beautiful, smooth flavors, the taste of lemon jelly, dried apricots and peaches, and fine, fresh acidity."
"Luscious with butterscotch, fig and golden honey flavors, this is a gragrant, jasmine-scented Porto. The finish is a rush of yellow fruit sweetness, soft and nutty, classical in its balance of freshness and age. "
Wine & Spirits
This is like drinking velvet. Sweet, but not cloying, light but deep in flavors noted above with a cherry fudge finish
I drink 1 oz only a day. It is wonderful! It's my treat and with it there is no need for a dessert or anything else.
This vintage has a very smooth rish taste, the aroma and flavor reflects the aging in oak casks. Sweet, but not overly, warm with a after taste that makes you want more. Great sipping wine.

Taylor's is now into its fourth century: one of the very oldest of the Port companies. It is the last totally independent company of the original British Port houses-and is still family owned and managed. It is run today from Oporto by descendants of the Yeatman and Fladgate families, both of which have been partners in the firm since the 1830s. For more than 300 years Taylor's name has been synonymous with consistent excellence in Port.
