Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2010

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalThis LBV draws upon fruit from Taylor estates in Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. It’s as ready to drink as any young Taylor wine which means you could technically wait a year or two but there is enough fruit to buffer the inherent structure that marks the Taylor style. The nose is redolent with licorice and Christmas cake that spills onto the palate with a wisp of classic pipe tobacco. Good value and complex as it gets for LBV.Tasted: 02 October 2015Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: QC 21.50 NS 22.00 MB 20.00 AB 27.00 private wine shops NL 21.00 BC 23.59 BCLS NF 27.00 NS 25.00 ON 19.00 BC 14.49 375 BCLS Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
