Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2010

SKU 11707


Intense purple ruby color. Pungent aromatic nose with heaps of black woodland fruit, dark cherry and plum. Lovely clean, crisp freshness to the bouquet. The palate is rounded, smooth and perfectly balanced. Flavors of redcurrant, raspberry and blueberry in abundance, with a delicious hint of black licorice, wonderful purity of fruit. In true Taylor Fladgate style, the wine is very well structured with big firm tannins that hold the wine nicely together. The finish is wonderfully long. Food Pairing: Pairs well with robust soft and hard cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton and Roquefort. An LBV is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or fresh berries.

Wine SpectatorThere are lots of peppery notes to this juicy, open-textured style. Dark plum and cherry notes lead to plenty of midpalate minerality. Dark chocolate and cream accents linger on the rich, well-sculpted finish. Drink now.

Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. This is a beautifully perfumed wine, with just the right dense texture of tannins and depth. A balance of fruit, tannins and acidity make this quite attractive. Drink now for immediate pleasure or wait until 2017 for a more mature character.
