2002 Churchill's Port Late Bottled Vintage 750ml - $29.99
"Late Bottled means bottled after 4, rather than 2 years in wood. Our LBV is a rich, concentrated port from one good harvest, which has been aged for 4 years in wood. The word 'traditional'AasA'A means that it is bottled without any filtration or refrigeration so that the wine can continue developing in the bottle before it is released for sale, two years later. At the end of the bottle ageing period, it is ready for immediate drinking. or alternatively, and this is purely optional, it can be cellared for a few more years to acquire one of the more pronounced characteristics of Vintage Port, which is a 'bottle nose'AasA'A - at which stage it may have formed a sediment and require to be decanted." -The Winery Rating for previous vintage: 87 Points - Wine Enthusiast, March, 2003 "Churchill Graham is the youngest of the Port shippers, established in 1981. The Churchill LBV is a traditional, unfiltered wine, which can age well. This wine has richness and sweetness tempered with a layer of dry tannins and concentration." -R.V.
2003 Cockburn's Vintage Port 750ml - $104.99
Wine Spectator, April 2006 Rating: 95 points "Fantastic aromas of blackberries and tar. Lightly stemmy, which is the sign of a great young Vintage Port. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a lasting finish. Lots of plums and raspberries. The new 1927? Best after 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,000 cases made." -JS
2007 Quinta Do Noval Vintage Port 750ml - $98.99
94 Points - Wine Advocate, February 2010 "The 2007 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is a star of the vintage. Dense purple-colored, it gives up an already complex aromatic array of lavender, Asian spices, incense, and an amalgam of black fruits with a hint of chocolate in the background. Plush and mouth-filling, this large-scaled Port manages an uncanny blending of elegance and power. Long and savory in the finish, it will continue to blossom for another 20+ years and drink well through its 50th birthday if not longer." -Jay Miller 93 Points - Wine Spectator, May 2010 "Very complex, with intense aromas of squeezed tangerine, blackberry and blueberry. Full-bodied, medium sweet and chewy. Extracted yet balanced, with an intense fruity and grapey character. Tight and reserved on the finish. Best after 2015. 1,800 cases made." -James Suckling
2007 Grahams Late Bottled Vintage Port 750ml - $26.99
Like Vintage Port, LBV is a wine of a single year but it is not a 'declared' Vintage Port. Whereas Vintage Port spends only two years in casks and then matures in bottle, LBV is aged solely in cask and then bottled at between four and six years old. At the time of bottling it has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking without the need for decanting. Graham's LBV has much of the rich full fruity flavour and 'grip' of Vintage Port, combining this with a softness gained through oak ageing.
