Dows’ 2011 – Vintage Port

(Bottled in 2013) The nose is fruity, elegant, fine, harmonious, finely powerful and offers great delicacy. It reveals notes of blackberry jam, fine touches of cassis and hints of plum red berries associated with discreet hints of dried fig, fine hints of spices, dark chocolate as well as a discreet hint of pepper, and tea. The palate is fruity, harmonious, elegant, fine, nicely balanced, finely gourmand and offers a good volume, a small juiciness and an acid frame. In mouth this Porto expresses notes of juicy cassis, blackberry and fine hints of dried associated with a hint of red fruit / crushed strawberry as well as discreet hints of spice and a discreet hint of chocolate. Tannins are fine, elegant and structuring. Good length and persistence. Beautiful aging potential.
