Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2008

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalThe number one selling LBV in Quebec is made from both Taylor estate vineyards as well as sites in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The style is 'ready-to-sip' with that Taylor structure. A cooler year left the fruit to hang longer giving it less prune/raisiny notes and more red plums and black raspberries and liquorice with plenty of pipe tobacco and chocolate notes. Best with chocolate and or nut-based desserts as well as cheese and fruit plates.Tasted: 13 October 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: QC 21.50 NS 22.00 MB 20.00 AB 26.00 NL 21.00 BC 26.00 specialty listing NF 22.00 BC 16.00 375 specialty listing NS 25.00 ON 18.00 375 BC 16.00 Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
