310 years old and still going strong!
Deep ruby-red colour, with garnet rim. Classic intense black fruit nose. Firm, vigorous, full-bodied palate, with powerful fruit flavours and a long finish.
Taylor's Special Ruby Port is blended from red wines produced in the Baixo Corgo and Cima Corgo areas of the upper Douro Valley, selected for their depth of colour, intense fruit and full, firm palate. These wines are matured for about three years in oak vats, where they soften and develop without losing their fresh, intense fruity character and their deep ruby colour.
Taylor's Special Ruby is bottled for immediate drinking and should not need to be decanted unless the bottle has been kept for some time. It is an excellent dessert wine, particularly with ripe, blue cheeses. It should be served at room temperature.
Taylor's is the only Port wine shipper to remain completely independent throughout its 310 year history. It is still a family run company producing the highest quality Port wines that continue to fetch a premium at auction. Taylor's is distributed in over 54 countries around the world.
