Nice, poised, deep, berry and chocolate nose; rich, berry, port palate showing poise and depth already; long finish.


Wine Doctor

Refined. Elegant. This has great style. Chocolate and smoke. Damsons. This has great purity. Beautiful weight and texture. Stunning finesse here. Wonderful balance. Superb, ripe tannins coated in a seamless layer of fruit. Great potential. Possibly wine of the vintage. 


For the Love of Port

The epitome of an 'impenetrable appearance'. Rose petals

and violets waft from within the glass and the nose is just fantastic. Seemingly more fruity than typical for Dow, the palate provides powerful plum and cassis with a mouth feel that takes a minute to figure out. Everything is big here: the fruit is ripe and concentrated, the tannins are chewy and astringent, while the acidity acts as the life support system at its core. No reason to touch your Dow's unless the curiosity has forced your hand, otherwise leave these be - for 2-3 decades or more. I still say it is the best young Dow VP I have ever tasted and that is saying a lot! 95 Points

Darren's Notes

Superbly concentrated wines that are scented with violet and mint aromas, intense and tannic when young, maturing towards a superlative racy elegance with age.
