Romariz LBV Port
Portugal - Douro

Romariz LBV was developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready to drink alternative to Vintage Port for everyday consumption. Unlike Vintage Port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled.

Deep, dark purple with a rich red rim. 
Bright, fruity nose, full of red cherry, damsons and a very elegant underlying spice.
On the palate, the ripe, red fruit is further accentuated with morello cherry, notes of eucalyptus, blueberry and subtle hints of mocha.
The finish is bright, with lingering notes of raspberry, lovely acidity and silky tannins.

RS: 105g/L
Total acidity: 3,80 g/L

iwinereview"Dark ruby red. Restrained aromas of sweet, dark red fruit with good richness and density on a firmly structured palate. Layered, expressive flavors of plums and dried cherries with notes of fruitcake, tobacco and leather. Fine firm tannins balance the wine’s natural sweetness. Aged 5 years in oak. Pair with strongly flavored, hard cheeses."
