Taylor's were pioneers of the LBV category, developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready-to-drink alternative to Vintage Port for everyday consumption. Unlike Vintage Port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled. Taylor's continues to lead the LBV category of Port worldwide, in spite of the fact that many other shippers now also produce an LBV.
The wines used to blend Taylor's LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red Ports, produced at the 2015 harvest, from grapes grown on Taylor’s own vineyards and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas.
Vivid ruby coloured rim around a deep purple black centre. On the nose, the first impression is of brambly woodland berries and rich, jammy aromas of blackcurrant. Around this dense core of ripe dark berry fruit are leafy scents of mint and wild herbs, a subtle spiciness and fleeting cedary notes of cigar box. The palate is underpinned by firm, linear tannins and lifted by a lively acidity. Thick, luscious cassis flavours blend with raspberry and apricot and carry through into the very long finish. An archetypal Taylor's Late Bottled Vintage, elegant and restrained, with great quality and purity of fruit.
