Food Pairings for Taylor Fladgate Porto Late Bottled Vintage
Very nice nose with loads of dark fruit, on the palate that turned to blueberry for me which was great, had a board of cheese in front of me and I would have to agree that the blue cheese paired perfectly
Got this as a birthday present to myself. The lush burgundy colour it exudes is amazing, on the nose its pungent almost cognac-y scent entwined with an intense grape jam hint. It taste brilliant, thick bold tannins that indeed do come out very strong at first but after the initial sip it gives way to a more berry focused flavour profile, the sugar levels were great and ended with a long strong finish. It tasted like a moderately sweet aged Shiraz which to me was excellent, I had mine with a Lindt 85% Dark chocolate bar, perfect match.
External Reviews for Taylor Fladgate Porto Late Bottled Vintage
Opaque, purple black colour with a narrow violet rim. Characteristically stylish and racy, with a nose of dense blackcurrant and woodland fruit overlaid with discreet herbal nuances and scents of violet and rose petals.
Taylor Fladgate is considered by many to be the Chateau Latour of Port. Always firmly structured and richly endowed, this Late Bottled Vintage 2005 is a prime example of the signature house style. Rated 90 points by Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "Initially the tannins dominate, but then ripe, sweet jelly and juicy fruit shows through, giving the wine its main character. There is some firm tannin, but the wine enjoys generous sweetness."
Pungent, aromatic nose with heaps of black fruit, dark cherry and plum. Lovely clean, crisp freshness to the bouquet. The palate is rounded, smooth, balanced. Flavours of blueberry and raspberry in abundance with delicious touch of black liquorice.
Has berry character, but it's slightly funky, with old wood and earth notes. Medium- to full-bodied and medium sweet, with silky tannins and an earth and berry aftertaste. Drink now.
Medium-bodied and mildly tannic. Black fruits, plums, licorice and earth flavors. A youthful, aromatic nose reveals full-extracted flavors.
The best-selling LBV keeps up its quality impressively. With its flavors of rich fruit cake and ripe tannins, it is soft and supple, and ready to drink without aging. But it has a touch of elegance and style that pushes it well up in quality.
