Product Overview

A late-bottled vintage port is a single-vintage blend that has been aged four to six years in oak casks, unlike a vintage port which ages only two years in wood before bottling. As a result of this extended wood contact, LBV ports have mature, fruity flavors at a younger age, offering much of the character of a vintage port without the wait and at a lower price.

The 2012 Ramos Pinto Late Bottled Vintage Porto is a bright, almost opaque red color with bluish reflections. Intense aroma of very ripe raspberries, dry leaf notes and a hint of anise and pepper. A full-bodied, nervy wine rich in tannins but fresh and harmonious, with ripe fruit, notes of gum cistus and hints of dark chocolate and pepper. Well-structured and long lasting with fresh tannins, typical of the year, it promises excellent development. It is a good accompaniment to game dishes, red meat, cheese soufflé, Serra or other fatty cheeses and any chocolate desserts. The suggested serving temperature is between 59 and 64 degrees F. Store the bottle on its side, in a cool, dry and dark place.
