The 2011 LBV ports are here just in time for the holidays, get yours today as these may be the greatest LBV ever made from the different Port shippers (DOW, Grahams, etc...) #oporto #portugal #douro #taylorfladgateyeatman

From the exceptional 2011 growing season, this is about as good as a "filtered" LBV can get. An incredible value at $20, this is a great peak into the more expensive world of true "Vintage Port".
A complex melange of blackberry, red currants and blueberry fruits, licorice, a dusty cracked stone-like minerality, sweet baking spices, and a shade of dried sage. The harmony, depth, balance and massively long flavors end with a pop of acid and firm, long, finely structured tannins.

Complex, well structured and opened up dramatically with air. All features that I don't always find in LBV. Classic vintage on a budget.

I know that LBV is just an illuminati plot to undermine the proletariat, but this one smells like a wet red rose in June growing amidst honeysuckle. It is seductive, sporting veinous, ripe cantaloupe and red hots. Tar and black cherry reduction with gum Arabic, red beer, grenadine and blackberry. Light on the pepper, but cuts through Stilton like propaganda through the will of the masses. Enjoy with ideologues! #porto #portovino #lbv #illuminati #fakenews #conspiracytheorywines #portugesewine

JL Fladgate tasting 10/20/16. Good dark fruit and a bit of alcohol on nose. Very balanced palate with hints of chocolate and complex medium finish. Good value at $18.7.

A bit more complex than a ruby port. Pairs well with chocolate

Great LBV port, lots of dark fruit. So jammy, I want to spread this port on some crackers.
