It's only wine but I like it

The Vargellas, tasted from the 375ml bottle. Deeply coloured and richly flavoured, with huge dark fruit, spice, and dried fruit. Wonderful balance, as is the norm for Taylors, with sweetness and acidity perfectly matched and a long, long finish. Thoroughly enjoyable now, but really needs to be forgotten in a cellar for 10 years or so as this will surely only improve from here. Tasted June 2012.
