Taylor Fladgate Porto represents more than 300 years of tradition. Taylor’s created the Late Bottled Vintage category to satisfy the demand for a high quality, ready to drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption. Unlike vintage port, which is bottled after only 2 years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after 4 to 6 years and is ready to drink when bottled. 2009 vintage – Deep ruby red color, black Morello cherry on the nose, great vibrancy and wonderful freshness of fruit. On the palate, cassis, plums and blackberry combine with the well-integrated and tightly knit tannins. Long elegant finish.
