Quinta de la Rosa Late Bottled Vintage Port 2008
|Brand||Quinta de la Rosa|
The 2008 LBV has very lively, complex aromas with a mature, black plum, spicy, herbal finish. It has good concentration without being too full bodied and fresh tannins giving the port length and depth. Thanks to the year and good acidities, two opposing flavours of maturity and concentration are well integrated with freshness and equilibrium. The LBV is similar in style to other La Rosa ports - well defined, a good structure, and mature tannins with soft wood undertones. La Rosa ports are always slightly drier than most, and the brandy is always well integrated.
A fresh and juicy style, with medium-weight flavors of dark plum, cherry and dark currant matched to notes of mincemeat and chocolate mousse. Shows good lift on the finish. Drink now.
