Smith Woodhouse Late Bottled Vintage Port 2008
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
Very deep-colored crimson center, just beginning to fade along the rim. Bright, intense aromatics of fresh, red fruits, eucalyptus and fragrant rose scent (typical signature of Touriga Nacional). Substantial and weighty on the palate with fleshy, plummy wild berry fruit and chocolate nuances. While full and assertive, the fresh fruit flavors are balanced by the smooth texture which the combination of wood and bottle ageing (4 and 6 years) has given the wine. Pairs with a wide selection of cheeses, suchas blue cheese (Stilton, Roquefort, etc) as wellas sweet desserts and dark chocolate.
91 Wine Enthusiast - The Late Bottled Vintage Ports from this producer are made to be aged after bottling. That’s why this wine still has great freshness as well as tannins. It is dry, showing the blackberry fruits with acidity as well as richness. Drink now or certainly until 2023.
