External Reviews for Dow's 07 Vintage Port Port Dow
Amazing aromas of lilac, violet, crushed blueberry and mineral that turn to black pepper and spices follow through to a full-bodied, medium-sweet palate, with a long, chewy finish. Evolves to tar and asphalt. Really held back, yet powerful grip slaps you mdash; and makes you happy. This is mind-blowing in texture. The greatest Dow ever made. Best after 2022.
Comprised of an unusually high proportion of Touriga Nacional, this an atypically accessible release from a house whose wines are known for their austerity.
Amazing aromas of lilac, violet, crushed blueberry and mineral that turn to black pepper and spices follow through to a full-bodied, medium-sweet palate, with a long, chewy finish. Evolves to tar and asphalt. Really held back, yet powerful grip slaps you - and makes you happy. This is mind-blowing in texture. The greatest Dow ever made. Best after 2022.
Aromas of blackberry and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of sweetness, fine tannins and a caressing, textured finish. Refined. Best after 2012.
(Barrel tasting) Chewy in texture and a real mouthful of flavor, offering layers and layers of berry, plum and spice aromas and flavors that extend into a solid finish. Remains graceful and harmonious, however, suggesting that cellaring until 2010 to 2015 will make it a real beauty.
The firmly-structured, moderately tannic, impressively colored and concentrated 1991 Vintage Port is less precocious and more reserved. It may develop along the lines of the stern but powerful 1977. The wine offers a classic display of black fruits, licorice, and chocolate aromas and flavors, as well as a full-bodied, muscular style with considerable tannin and firmness. Give it 10-12 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 30+.
Very grapey, with black licorice and blackberry character. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and an exquisite finish. Refined and well-made. Best after 2010.
