2009 Taylor LBV

Post by griff » 08:35 Sat 28 Feb 2015

As the only reasonably priced LBV on the Australian market we finally have the 2009 on sale. Dark cherry red that is completely opaque. Rich, dense, chewy palate of cherries with a lick of tannin and slight heat on the finish. Reminds me a little of cough syrup! :oops: Definitely intense and I wonder whether a somewhat coarser filtration regimen was employed. Perhaps just the vagaries of the vintage. Good LBV but personally I prefer the violets expressed by the cooler 2008. I suspect my experience aligns more so with the second of Alex's tasting notes.

cheers

Carl
