Vintages Wine Panel: LBV Ports, such as this one, are bottled ready-to-drink. Some can age further, but generally they offer a great opportunity to enjoy quality Ports with no cellaring time required, making them a great choice for impromptu gatherings and ‘dessert parties’. This 2003 vintage is complex and rich, with candied cherry, chocolate and spice flavors. My note: Black cherry liqueur on the nose, followed by anise, dried herbs and blackberries. Wonderfully concentrated and rich.

Late Bottled Vintage Port food pairings: dark chocolate, blue cheese, coffee cake, baked pears, dark chocolate cheese cake, almond-based desserts.
