Notes from the Winemaker:
Deep ruby-black core and narrow red rim with purple highlights. The intense and youthful nose displays very fine, complex red and black berry fruit aromas. Ripe strawberry notes and discreet leafy, herbal scents are suffused in a powerful redolence of dark brambly woodland fruit and blackcurrant jam. As is typical of Taylor Fladgate, the nose is beautifully delineated with very fine, focused fruit.

Tasting Notes

The palate has impressive density and vigour, with thick, mouth filling tannins providing both structure and body. Luscious berry fruit flavours linger into the long finish. As usual, this LBV shares the pedigree of the great Taylor vintage ports but is made in an approachable style, ready for drinking now by the glass.

Ratings & Reviews


92 Points - Wine Spectator:
"This is on point now, with gently mulled plum, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors forming the core, while bittersweet cocoa, roasted apple wood and briar patch notes underscore the finish. This still has kick too, so no rush. Drink now through 2027. 125,000 cases made, 8,000 cases imported." — J.M.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a typical Douro blend bottled in 2019 with a bar-top cork, 103 grams of residual sugar and 20% alcohol. This is a middle-of-the-road LBV in this vintage. Some have been bigger and deeper. A balanced performance with nothing striking but everything in its proper place, this 2015 is average in concentration and nicely aromatic. It shows average structure. There's just a bit of bite on the finish. Of course, it is very drinkable right now, and that is the idea. You can hold this a few years if you must, but that's very much not the idea. So, dive in." - Mark Squires (Dec 2020)
