Today's Sip

September 1, 2020

Day #245 of the year.

Taylor Fladgate 20-Year Tawny

The first day of September brings mixed emotions and contemplation. On the one hand, it signals the warmth and outdoor fun of summer is ending soon but on the other hand, the gorgeous colors of fall are on the way. September 1 is, fittingly, American Chess Day — a contemplative game if there ever was one. So why not match a contemplative wine? This tawny Port is one to sip slowly and enjoy with concentration and thoughtfulness — much as you might as you consider your next chess move. Heck, a glass of Taylor Fladgate might just improve your game. Check mate!

Tasting Notes

Opulent, voluptuous, spicy, jammy and nutty aromas with orange blossom notes and vanilla. Rich on the palate with concentrated flavor and a long, mellow finish.

The same dishes typically found on a chess table: figs, almonds, pecan pie, desserts made with coffee or caramel, and crème brûlée.
