Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2003

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalSurprisingly pruny on the nose for Taylor but with black cherry jam, plum, peppery, tea and liquorice aromas. The entry is supple with a slightly sweeter style but very full and warm. Intense chocolate, peppery, spirity, black tea, nutty, licorice root, black cherry jam, prune and coffee flavours. A bit warm with light tannins on the finish but lots of stuffing for the money here. Good value.Tasted: 30 December 2009Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: QC 20.00 NS 22.00 MB 20.00 AB 25.00 NL 21.00 specialty listing BC 26.00 specialty listing Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
