Ramos Pinto LBV Port 2012
Fresh and velvety at first. Quite fruity, with a smooth silky finish with the ability to keep for a further 15 / 20 years if you wish to cellar.
A late-bottled vintage port is a single-vintage blend that has been aged four to six years in oak casks, unlike a vintage port which ages only two years in wood before bottling. As a result of this extended wood contact, LBV ports have mature, fruity flavours at a younger age, offering much of the character of a vintage port without the wait and at a lower price.
