Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2012

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalDried tobacco, dried orange, fig, quince paste through this round, but structured LBV. More so than last year, the 2012 has a definite grippy, gritty frame with firm sides containing the caramelized, ripe, burnished orange-cherry fruit. The finish lingers with a savoury nut shell note. This is drawn from Taylor estates in Cima Corgo and Douro Superior, and is ready for drinking now while you wait a decade or few for your vintage ports to mature.Tasted: 15 December 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.99 BCLS BC 14.99 375 BCLS Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
