Wine EnthusiastThis is rather flashy for Taylor, with plenty of upfront appeal to its floral, spicy aromas and gobs of fruit. It's very lush and soft on the palate, almost overloaded with blackberries and plums, then firms up and begins to show that Taylor reserve on the dusty finish. Hold.

Wine AdvocateSaturated black/purple-colored, with stunning aromatics of blueberries, blackberries, licorice, and iron, this spectacular vintage port is one of the stars of the vintage. Extremely full-bodied, with silky tannin, spectacular concentration and purity, multiple flavor levels, and an evolved, forward personality, this is an exquisite yet precocious 1997 vintage port. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.

Wine SpectatorBeautiful. A young Port, with very pretty blackberry, violet and cherry character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Very well done. Best after 2007. 10,000 cases made. (JS)
