96-97 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2007
Opaque dark ruby. Incredibly rich, deep and pungent on the nose, offering an outsized bouquet of kirsch, blackberry, cassis and musky cured tobacco. I commented that this smelled like a great port and Guigal, who clearly adores this wine, said "Well, 1945 Taylor is a wine I'd walk miles for." Powerful, deeply concentrated and sweet, with explosive cherry, plum and dark berry flavors, notes of bitter chocolate and exotic spices, and molten tannins. I'm not sure how you'd serve this monster (15.5% alcohol) but it sure is fun to drink.
