Taylor’s Fine Ruby a blend of full bodied Port wines aged for around two years in large oak vats in Taylor’s cellars, or ‘lodges’, in Vila Nova de Gaia. As they age, they gain smoothness and elegance while retaining their fruitiness, intensity and youthful ruby colour. They are then blended together for balance and consistency. With its firm tannins and concentrated fruitiness. Taylor's pairs well with berry fruit and dark chocolate flavours and, like all red Ports, makes an excellent after dinner drink.

A nice port. Pleasantly sweet and very slightly acidic. Deep dark ruby for color. On the nose there is plum, blackberries, some oak , a bit of dark chocolate, cherry, and fig. A nice dessert wine and a good value. - Frank Rinaldo
Full ripen smooth red berry style. Intense aroma of red plum, dried fruit and jam. Dry, medium acidity, full body, full smooth tannin. Not complicated but balanced. Good as an after meal wine. - Yi-Hung Pan
