2009 Barros LBV Porto, Douro DOC, Portugal

Late Bottled Vintage Port was developed to give consumers much of the intensity of Vintage Port in a pre-matured form. This wine comes from the 2006 harvest and was aged in oak casks for 6 years prior to bottling. The wine is made from the traditional port varieties and has a deep dark colour and robust structure not unlike Vintage Port. It is rich and ripe with notes of figs, prunes, chocolate, toffee and dates. The wine is sweet and viscous finishing with luscious chalky intensity.
Try this wine with roast lamb, a mild beef curry or a good Stilton cheese. Cellar now to 2029 (Drink within 10 days of opening).
