Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2016

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalLBVs are bottled after 4-6 years to make them accessible upon release without the need for decades of bottle age. This is fairly developed, with elegant, dried black fruits intertwined with sweet spices and cedar. It's missing the fresh floral aromatics of the 2015 LBV, which would help to give this a notch more vibrancy. The tannins are still surprisingly assertive, drying out the finish and suggesting this needs to be paired with a cheese plate.Tasted: 16 February 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 25.99 BCLS BC 14.99 375 BCLS Producer: Taylor Fladgate PartnershipDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
