Dow’s is considered to be one of the leading Port houses and their wines are amongst the longest lived and most impressive. It was the first British Port producer to invest extensively in premium vineyards, and continues to make its premium Port by treading in stone ‘lagares’.
“Shows the intense ripeness of the vintage with hints of raisins and other dried fruits. Full-bodied, medium sweet and so very velvety. A big mouthful. Superb. Just starting to open.” – 99pts James Suckling, January 2017
“An impressively concentrated wine, showing the hallmark Dow’s dry edge, but still full of ripe fruit, flavors of black plums and berries. It has weight and spice, but also a delicious perfume, layered through a smooth, opulent texture.” – 95pts Wine Enthusiast, October 2009
