1968 Vintage Report

Bordeaux had poor weather leading to a fair vintage. Bad weather also affected Burgundy and the Cote du Rhone. In Portugal, a very dry and hot summer led to only Single Quinta ports being produced. Italy had a very successful year especially for Barolo. Sweet red wines from the South of France, Italian reds and Armagnacs are a good choice for this vintage.

1968 Taylor Fladgate Very Old Single Harvest Port 1968 (Taylor's Wooden Box)

"This draws you in, with aromas of warm halva and toasted pistachio giving way to a wide range of buckwheat, toasted sesame, walnut husk, menthol and licorice root notes that refuse to break down in the mouth. Exhibits remarkable length, with ample viscosity matched by steely tension, putting this in rarefied air." 98 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator "This 1967 is part of Taylor Fladgate's regular releases of aged Colheita. It is showing a perfect moment in which the fruit finally passes into old gold maturity. The wine still has hints of sultanas, but now it's the fine wood and spice character that is equally important." 94 points, Wine Enthusiast.

1968 Taylor Fladgate Very Old Single Harvest Port 1968  (Vintagewinegifts Deluxe box)

Scoring 94/100 Parker points, "The 1968 Very Old Single Harvest Tawny Port comes in with 173 grams per liter of residual sugar. Taylor's started its ongoing 50-year Colheita program with the 1964 (or, as they prefer to say, "single harvest tawny port"). This is the newest release, scheduled to be in the marketplace by the Fall of this year. It was bottled in 2017 with a bar-top cork. It is hard to go wrong with any of the wines Taylor's has been releasing in this series—they all have something special to offer. We can debate endlessly which is better—often, the style difference is more important than a minor qualitative difference. This year's style shows finesse and more finesse. It is relatively elegant for an old tawny, with a controlled, sweet edge. Hints of brandy do periodically pop up, but they are not hard or harsh. It lingers beautifully on the finish as fine, old Tawnies do. The finish is often the best part of these oldies. This will last indefinitely, but it is meant to drink on release and needs no aging. Most do not hold Tawnies with bar-top corks. Drink it around 60 degrees Fahrenheit—and definitely not too warm. Most producers recommend 58 to 62 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on your preferences and the wine." Drink now - 2065. A wonderful 50th vintage wine gift for a 1968 anniversary.
