Food Pairings for Smith Woodhouse
Low-yielding old vines have produced a full-bodied, finely structured wine.With scents of eucalyptus and mint overlaying the fruit, the 1997 is morepowerful and assertive than the 1994 and would repay a longer cellaring. Withoak notes and fruit harmoniously integrated, this has everything one could askfor from a Vintage Port of the highest quality. "Top class. Showing well at the MW tasting and then very high marks at Fells'tasting. Interesting nose, touch of tar and liquorice, whiff of honeycomb; leanyet fleshy, very good flavour and finish." last noted November 2000 (4 starsout of 5) Drink 2006-2025." (Michael Broadbent MW - "Vintage Wine")
