Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2009

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalTaylor LBV is made with fruit from both Taylor estate vineyards as well as sites in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. I like to say the style is 'ready-to-sip' but with that Taylor structure. In '09 the yields were low due to the set and drought-like conditions late in the year. Expect plenty of black fruit and vitality on the nose and palate with plums and black cherries doused with a little pipe tobacco. Sip solo or with walnuts or even dark chocolate. Good value.Tasted: 13 December 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: QC 21.50 NS 22.00 MB 20.00 AB 27.00 NL 21.00 BC 26.00 specialty listing NF 27.00 NS 25.00 ON 19.00 BC 16.00 375 specialty listing Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
