86 points: This wine was never 100% there for me. Sometimes it had a strong iodine/wood flavor, other times nice berries and chocolate. Different from sip to sip. Liked it most the first night.

perhaps you drank it like 20 years too soon? ;-)

at 3.5 years after release, it's certainly in a dumb phase, but then again I've never agreed with critics saying 07 was a "stellar" year

Confused I thought LBVs were ready to go.

Well, g-man, since you are the forum Port guy what are your LBV picks? Don't be shy about Tawny or Ruby either.

I favour LBV's that are 'Unfiltered'.
Smith Woodhouse and Quinta do Noval are two examples off the top of my head.


Canadian weather?
Nine months of hockey and three months of bad ice.

rozes and smith woodhouse are my two favorites

I would say that quevedo is starting to be one but since I sell the stuff, caveat emptor.

Don't have access to Quevedo or Rozes right now but will watch for them. Thanks.

the rozes for sure whenever it shows up is one of the best bangs for the buck

esp the 94.

Warre always wins awards for it's traditional LBV in the UK. It throws a sediment like Vintage and Crusted ports.
