TAYLORS - LBV 2004Port
Powerful dark cherry and black fruit aromas.
The floral and herbal notes that come through on the nose add lovely nuances to the bouquet.
The palate shows great intense fruit flavours and fantastic depth and complexity.
The wine is harmonious, well crafted, authoratative.
Taylor's created the Late Bottled Vintage style of port and is not only acknowledged to be its finest producer, but remains the international brand leader.
Blended from wines of a single year, LBV ages from four to six years in cask and is ready to drink when bottled. Its concentrated fruity flavour and firm, full-bodied style make Taylor's LBV the perfect port to accompany chocolate desserts, and blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort.
Taylor's Late Bottled Vintage is the port that Taylor's drink themselves and serve to their guests. Experienced port drinkers may well notice some similarities with Taylor's Vintage Ports, since it shares so many of their characteristics.
"Port is not just a winder drink and this remarkable, intense, statesman-like LBV is wonderful chilled and drunk either before or after dinner. Delicious, moreish and a bargain, this is one of the best value wines on the planet - I defy any dad not to adore this wine." Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail 14 June 2008.
