Late Bottles Vintage is considered by many the top end of ports but the top of the line is, of course, vintage port. Vintage Port isn't suited for drinking until at least a decade after you have made your purchase. Those Portos for sale that have already gained sufficient bottle age for consumption are going to costly. Ruby ports and tawny ports are the low-end of the market, generally avaialble for $7-25 a bottle. Ruby ports will be more similar in style to LBV than will tawnies, which show much greater wood (barrel) influence. Tawnies are very good valus and thus more popular. Genuine Porto comes from Portugal, but port style wines have been made in the US and Australia for many years. I have not heard favourable remarks about US ports. Although a completely different style than your Taylor LBV, I would recommend Yalumba's Clocktower tawny port to anyone, an Australian Port. A rich and lucious wine, with dark coffee and orange peel scents for seven to ten dollars.

As you can tell my pocket favours the Tawny but vintage port is excellent when it can be sampled at the right age.
