It's only wine but I like it

Fully mature LBV here from Taylor, soft and cuddly. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity, tannin is quite silky. Delicious. Quite clearly designed to be a drink-now (i.e. not for long ageing) LBV. Seems to be priced now at $19 in the LCBO's random-number method of pricing of its general list stock, more than a fair price. This goes on sale fairly regularly (I paid $15.95). I expect that there is a more recent vintage on the shelves now, but Taylor is as sure-fire as they come. Tasted Oct 2021.
