Dow's " 10 Years Old Tawny" Port 2010

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Medium-bodied, with a fresh allure to the flavors of baked apricot, dried mango and cherry tart. This is long and delicate on the spice-filled finish. Drink now.

Currently six members of the Symington family are fully engaged in the management of Dow’s, they represent the 12th and 13th generations involved in the Port trade via their great grandmother Beatrice Atkinson and over 350 years since their ancestors played a significant role in laying the foundations of the Port trade. Together with the family’s other Port firms, Dow’s is the only surviving independent Port producer in the hands of just one family amongst all the great historic Port companies. Following the great investments made in vineyards in the late 19th century, the company was one of the first to build a modern winery in the region in 1964, later to be adapted to become one of the first wineries with temperature control in all its fermentation tanks. In 1997, the company built a new winery at Quinta do Sol, widely acknowledged as one of the most innovative in Portugal. This was a major investment for the Symington family. The company’s commitment to top quality vineyard ownership, winemaking and the finest Ports remains at the heart of this family business. Peter Symington and his son Charles, Dow’s principal wine makers, have between them been nominated ‘Fortified Wine Maker of the Year’ at the International Wine Challenge a record seven times. These awards are testament to Dow’s reputation as one of the finest premium Port producers. Read less

Old and new, with a sweet and sour nose with nuts and fruitcake. Full-bodied, with pretty sweet and ripe fruit, with a candied fruit and toffee character on the finish and just a hint of nuts.

The light ruby cast to the color indicates the fruit thatandrsquo;s still apparent in this wine. Sweet and silky, its date flavors integrate well with the alcohol. This is a quiet, shimmering ten-year-old for flan.

10 Years indicates and average age. This Aged Tawny Port is a blend of older wines, which offer complexity and younger wines, which bring fresh fruit flavors and vibrancy. During their long maturing period in oak casks, Aged Tawnies undergo subtle color changes: the deep red hue which characterizes Port's youth gradually gives way to a paler reddish amber color. Dow's is known for its characteristically drier house style. This 10 Year has a full, nutty bouquet with citrus and vanilla accents on the palate and a soft lingering finish.
