Product Engraving & Gift Wrap

This late bottled vintage port is the ideal way to finish your meal. The ruby red port by Taylor's is fruity and refreshing. There is no need to decant this beautiful port and it can be poured straight from the bottle to your glass.

Produced from a single year and although offering different degrees of complexity and sophistication, these wines share a deep red youthful colour and intense fruity flavours reminiscent of cherry, blackberry and black currant - bottled ready to drink.

“This is beautifully crafted port with sweet-berry, mineral and slate character and hints of cedar and sandalwood. Full-bodied with sweet and polished, silky tannins. Sweet-fruit finish. Drink or hold.”

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com - January 2019

“The 2013 Late Bottled Vintage Port was filtered and bottled in 2018 with a bar-top cork and 95 grams of sugar. This has a plum-and-chocolate fruit nuance supported by moderate tannins that give it some distinction to go with the tasty fruit. This is a pretty fine example of the style. These can hold in the bottle, but that’s not the point here. They are not expected to develop, and they should be drunk relatively young.”

Mark Squires, Wine Advocate - July 2018

Late bottled vintage ports were introduced by Taylor's in 1970. This collection of ports are designed to be an alternative to vintage port and are known to be of high quality.  LBV ports do not need to be decanted before drinking as they have been left to age in wooden casks for 5/6 years and therefore have not been ageing in the glass bottle. 

Tasting notes

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.

How to serve

Taylor’s LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. It does not need to be decanted and should be served in a generously proportioned wine glass so that its rich fruity nose can be enjoyed to the full. Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR FONT CAREFULLY BEFORE HAVING YOUR SELECTED GIFT ENGRAVED. 

There are a small selection of fonts which will contain different character designs, and you may not like or approve of some of them. For example, in one of the fonts - 'Victoria' - the letter 'V' looks similar to the letter 'D' because of the italic serif design. Once an item has been engraved we cannot refund or exchange it, because we will not be able to resell an engraved item.
