Dow's

For over two centuries, even throughout the Napoleonic wars, Dow’s has imported wine to the UK from the Douro Valley. Many of the traditional practices remain the same. Treading is still used for a small portion of these intense ports. Dry and well structured, their vintage port ages exceptionally well.

Dow's 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (98)

The 2017 Dow’s Vintage Port showed a slight reduction and required more time to really open in the glass. Typical of Dow’s it has a more backward and introspective bouquet compared to its peers, scents of blackberry, clove, wild mint, cassis and vanilla, gradually gaining more intensity with aeration. The palate is simply glorious. It is built around a compelling tannic frame that seems finer than any Dow’s I have encountered apart from the ethereal 2011. There is so much energy coiled up in this Port, a sense of symmetry that is enthralling and yet you just know that it needs to be cellared for 15-20 years for it to reveal its full potential. For serious Port-lovers. One of the vintages most cerebral offerings. Total production is 5,250 cases.
