Taylor Fladgate Late Bottle Vintage Porto 2009 750ml, Portugal

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.
