The massive 1994 is unquestionably the finest Dow I have tasted since the 1977. This opaque purple-colored wine is not as developed or flamboyant as Fonseca, but it is super-concentrated and multi-layered, with huge masses of fruit and some tannin in... Robert Parker. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1994 Dow Vintage Port 750ml

Wine Spectator ReviewA blackstrap, powerful Port. Black, with intense aromas of raspberries, raisins, flowers and stems. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a long, rich finish. Tannins pull at your palate. A wine for the future. Best after 2008.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dow's 1994 Vintage Port is drinking beautifully right now – its one of our best vintages in recent history. It balances opulent red fruits with mineral and eucalyptus tones and has the Dow's characteristic drier finish. Its great depth and structure make it delicious now but it will also continue to age in the bottle for years to come. Declared Vintage Port is made only in the best of the best years and represents less than two percent of all Port made. It is sourced from Dow’s top vineyards, primarily Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira and aged for two years in barrel before bottling. Vintage Port needs to be decanted since it is aged in bottle. Serve it in a glass with at least a six ounce capacity so that you may appreciate the wine's aromas. Vintage Port is best served with creamy blue cheeses such as Point Reyes Original Blue or a fine Stilton or Roquefort. Once opened it should be consumed within a few days.
