Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2011

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalLight grapey notes open this juicy and youthful Late Bottled Vintage. Fine and moderate silkiness on the palate is countered with a nice light grip on the sweet finish. Welcoming and accessible. This 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.Tasted: 21 December 2016Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 24.99 BCLS BC 14.99 375 BCLS Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
