A 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, subtle spiciness and fleeting cedary notes of cigar box.
The palate is underpinned by firm, linear tannins and lifted by lively acidity.
Thick, luscious cassis flavours blend with raspberry and apricot and carry through into the very long finish.
An archetypal Taylors Late Bottled Vintage, elegant and restrained, with great quality and purity of fruit.
Taylors 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.
