Wine tasting notes

Fine tannins form a trellis supporting wild blackberries and other wild fruit, while a waft of cacao supplies welcome savouriness and balance.

Food matching

LBV Ports are the ideal partner for a cheeseboard, chocolate dessert or even an intense Port wine reduction. Full flavoured cheeses such as a good farmhouse Cheddar or Red Leicester. A rich chocolate pot, or chocolate brownie accompanied with some red berries

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2015) - 90 pts

The 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend with 95 grams of residual sugar. It is a traditional, unfiltered LBV bottled in February 2019 with a long cork. The mid-palate here is average, but the structure is a bit more notable. The fruit is very tasty, in a dry and controlled fashion, but this young LBV shows no hint of complexity or gravitas just yet. It needs a little more time to develop, obviously. It should hold well—there is no rush. Even if you think it is approachable now—moderate power does come out with aeration—it will benefit from a couple of years in the bottle. I'm not surprised this is showing well—in 2015, Crasto made one of its best ever Vintage Ports—but it is a bit understated, relatively speaking, especially on opening. If it is not quite as impressive in its category as the 2015 Vintage Port was, it still managed to improve dramatically when retasted the next day. At that point, there were some nuances of eucalyptus on the nose as well. There were 47,300 bottles produced (a dramatic uptick over the difficult 2014 vintage), plus 12,000 half bottles, from vines with an average age over 60 years old.


Wine Enthusiast (2015) - 90 pts

Aged in wood for years before bottling, this fine, mature wine boasts rich tannins that have opened into the ripe prune and date flavors. The wine has a sweet profile and is generous and softly textured at the end. Drink now. ROGER VOSS
