The Nebbiolo d'Alba has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port, 1988

Late Bottled Vintage Port

Late Bottled Vintage (also known as LBV) is a style of port produced from a single vintage. LBV differs from vintage port in that it is usually produced every year, and not just in those years declared to be of outstanding quality. It is said that the style was born of a mistake, when a vintage port was kept in barrel for too long and was no longer suitable for release in that category. No one can agree who was responsible for this, and several port estates lay claim to the honour.
