Pretty smooth, port wine at a nice price point. Had purchased a vintage Taylor Fladgate and was curious about this lower price point port. Was not disappointed and will likely buy again.

Das intensive Bouquet ist vielschichtig, komplex und ausgewogen. Es verheisst ein besonderes Trinkvergnügen! Dieser Jahrgangsportwein, der erst nach einigen Jahren der Fassreife auf die Flasche gefüllt wird – auf englisch «late bottled vintage» –, hält was er in der Nase ankündigt. Der Porto LBV entführt auf eine sensorische Abenteuerreise: vielfältige Aromen von reifen, gedörrten, eingemachten und gekochten Früchten sowie eine Palette von exotischen Gewürzen offenbaren sich im Gaumen und im beinahe unendlichen Finale, das so typisch für einen Klasse-Portwein ist. Körper und Gehalt einerseits sowie Harmonie und Eleganz andererseits sind die Qualitätsfaktoren, auf denen dieser bedeutende Porto basiert.

A leathery and molasses nose. Soft and warm on the palate, with notes of black fruit. There is really nice texture in this port which yields a smooth long finish.

Rubinrot, schwarze Farbe. In der Nase exotische Düfte von Veilchen und intensive dunkle Beeren. Im Gaumen erscheint der Geschmack von sehnigen Tannins und Trauben.

At its best, this wine is a vibrant, huge young Porto knocking out all the others with its delicious power - a Master of the Universe wine. It's a blast of schist, cherry, raspberry, pomegranate and black licorice, all held in a supple grip that slides down the throat just as slowly as the wine's color slides down the side of the glass. At this stage, the score shows some restraint, the wine having gone into a funk after a day of air and becoming reduced and difficult, only to rebound the following day. Still, this demonstrates the potential to be one of the greatest Port wines David Guimaraens has made, coming from a balanced year with beauty rather than aggression in the tannin. It will be fascinating to compare this to the 2003 as the wines age over the next 50 years.

Rubinrote Farbe. Kräftige, intensive Aromen aus schwarzen Früchten und Kirschen . Im Mund harmonisch und gut balaciertes Frucht- und Tanningemisch.

Medium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try.

When the soils at Vargellas bake in the August sun, they give off a dry heat that translates directly into this wine. Each taste is a shower of broken schist that explodes out of the fruit. The structure prepares the wine for a century of life, even its complexities single themselves into an almost physical taste memory.
