Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2015
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.
