Smith Woodhouse 2008 Late Bottled Vintage Port
Very deep-colored crimson center, just beginning to fade along the rim. Bright, intense aromatics of fresh, red fruits, eucalyptus and fragrant rose scent (typical signature of Touriga Nacional). Substantial and weighty on the palate with fleshy, plummy wild berry fruit and chocolate nuances. While full and assertive, the fresh fruit flavors are balanced by the smooth texture which the combination of wood and bottle ageing (4 and 6 years) has given the wine. Pairs with a wide selection of cheeses, suchas blue cheese (Stilton, Roquefort, etc) as wellas sweet desserts and dark chocolate.
