Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Deep ruby colour with garnet tints. Pretty powerful nose of black fruit syrup, cherry jam, notes of pits, cocoa, cooked prunes. Good balance on a well-structured and vinous Port. Beautiful sweetness without heaviness, warm point. Pretty fruity of morello cherries, cranberries, fairly smooth tannins. Good frank and long finish with a hint of roasting.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Domain and appellation
Wide black-purple colour with a narrow magenta border. The character of the 2016 vintage is clearly imprinted on this finely tuned and beautifully balanced LBV. This elegant and stylish LBV displays Taylor's classic blend of pure, concentrated fruit with a nervous muscularity, and impressive stamina and depth.
