Taylor Port, Finger Lakes, NY (750ml)


On the nose:
Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows that "foxy" sweet note distinctive of concord grapes, with some sweet, soft side notes. From the aroma, seems like this will be just lightly sweet and bright, with a simple style.

On the palate:
The primary elements on the palate are in fact very sweet red cherry, lush to the mid-palate, with less of the concord-style than I would have guessed. Along with the cherries, there is a light acidity from an orange-citrus zest. Finish is silky, with little sugar cloy.
