Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2005
External Reviews for Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port
Shows good complexity for an LBV, with aromas of smoke, herb and black cherries. Tobacco, dark chocolate and tea notes emerge on the palate, which is drier than most LBVs and in keeping with the house style.
While this is typical of the Dowrsquo;s style, with its dryness and structure, it also has great elegance. That dryness is balanced with the fine, ripe dark berry fruit flavors and by the fresh acidity that tops it off.
You get a glimpse of the fine qualities of the 1997 vintage in this bottling, which displays lush black cherry and plum aromas and flavors against a backdrop of supple tannins and a velvety texture. The elements are well integrated, and the finish is long and fruity.
Dark ruby color with intense and concentrated aromas of ripe fruits, particularly plums and berries. One the palate, peppery and spice flavors, excellent grip and a long finish!
