The 2009 Late Bottled Vintage Port was bottled in 2014 after five years in oak. It comes in with 98 grams per liter of residual sugar. This has settled down since I first saw it. Although it is quite drinkable now, it is still big and burly with some tannic pop on the finish. The restrained sweetness and flavor turns rather complex on the finish. It is an LBV that seems a bit austere and intellectual at times, but that just helps it seem rather serious. It has great fruit, too. Note that this has a bar top cork and was filtered. It is not expected to improve much. It is intended to be drunk young, not aged, although it can certainly hold longer if the cork remains good. -RP
