Taylor's "Quinta De Vargellas" 1978 Vintage Port

Vintage Port is a specific style of Ruby Port which is made only in exceptional years and from the ripest grapes.  The fermented wine is fortified before being aged for 2 years in massive oak vats which preserve the ripe fruit character.  Upon bottling, the wines continue to age and can reward patient maturation for many decades.

This bottle is a single-estate Vintage Port from Taylor's vineyards at Quinta De Vargellas.

1978 vintage, bottled in 1980.
