Smith Woodhouse is one of the only producers that makes a Traditional Bottle-Matured Late Bottled Vintage Port. The grapes are harvested in the fall and are fermented for a short period of time before the addition of 100% grape spirit alcohol. This step stops fermentation, preserves the wine's natural grape sugars, and gives it its unique richness. The wine is aged for four years in cask, then bottled unfiltered and aged for a minimum of five more years before its release.
Tasting notes: Deep ruby color. Attractive nose of black fruit and notes of dark chocolate and spices. On the palate is packed with layers of dark fruits. This 2002 LBV is full bodied, well balanced with firm tannins with a never ending finish. Will age well for the next 10 years.
