Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2007

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalTaylor has gone back to a brighter, fresher, and in MHO, better looking white label. Expect a big black pepper, blackberry, black liquorice/prune nose flecked with tobacco, dried fig, orange peel and spicy caramel notes. The attack is supple but with fine acidity and sugar balance and rich blackberry, cedar, tobacco, peppery, licorice root and smoky, resin, baked prune/plum, menthol flavours. A slightly drier style but good intensity to drink now or keep a few years with some tannin to help. Well done.Tasted: 17 April 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: QC 21.50 NS 22.00 MB 20.00 AB 26.00 NL 21.00 specialty listing BC 26.00 specialty listing NF 22.00 BC 16.00 NS 25.00 ON 18.00 BC 16.00 375 Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
