2000 Dows Vintage Port, Douro, Portugal
For over two centuries the name of Dow has been associated with the finest Port from the vineyards of the Upper Douro Valley.
Review: “An opaque blue/purple color (typical of this vintage's top offerings) is followed by a strikingly provocative aromatic display (flowers, licorice, blackberries, and cassis). This firmly-structured, classic, tightly-knit, restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant, it is a beautiful, classically structured port that will age gracefully. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.” Robert Parker.
