Graham’s Late Bottled Vintage Port (LBV) is a superb wine, selected from the finest production of what was a spectacular year. Whereas Vintage Port spends two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is matured in seasoned oak and then bottled at between four and six years of age; hence the term, ‘late bottled’. Its ageing process encourages the wine’s development, and as such, at the time of bottling it is ready to drink without the need for decanting.
Graham’s 2014 LBV has a deep opaque ruby colour. On the nose it is brimming with layers of dark fruits combined with floral hints of fresh mint. On the palate it is full-bodied with flavours of cassis and demonstrates Graham’s unique complexity, balance of power and finesse, and a long firm finish.
