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. On the nose, cassis and blackberry jam with hints of smoke and spice. Then sweet black fruits, spice and liquorice, with good concentration and soft texture. Serve with the cheesboard or festive puddings.
