Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2005

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalTaylor's created the Late Bottled Vintage category blending wines of a single year and ageing those four to six years in 20-70,000 litre vats. Upon release its black cherry jam and liquorice aromas entice while its supple slightly sweet style invites you to the glass. On the palate more chocolate, pepper, black tea, cassis and coffee flavours dominate. An excellent example of the LBV category providing big flavours, early drinkability and fine value.Tasted: 03 November 2011Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: QC 21.00 NS 22.00 MB 20.00 AB 25.00 NL 21.00 specialty listing BC 26.00 specialty listing NF 22.00 BC 16.00 375 NS 21.00 Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
