Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port Fortified Port/Sherry/Madeira Red Blend Portugal Douro 2004
91 points Wine Enthusiast: [$22 list] On the dry side, typical of Dow's, a wine with jellied fruits kept behind firm, young tannins. The wine has definite acidity, bracketing the tannins and dark fruits. The perfumed aftertaste is fresh, but still keeping that dry core. (Mar 2010)
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

External Reviews for Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port Fortified Port/Sherry/Madeira Red Blend Portugal Douro
Raspberry red appearance. Medium-bodied. Highly extracted. Plums, sweet red fruits, vanilla. Rich, fruity aromas lead a bright, fruit-flavored palate with a Ruby character that gives this a youthful attractive personality. Very balanced.
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!
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.
While this is typical of the Dow'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.
