Dow's Port

dow-vintage-port

Dow has been associated with the finest Port from the vineyards of the Upper Douro Valley. Production is centered on the Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira which accounts for the unique house style. The wines are superbly concentrated, intense and tannic when young, maturing towards a superlative racy elegance with age and scented with violet and mint aromas. Dow’s attractive and distinctive drier finish is the recognisable hallmark of the wines from this great Port house.

Dow's produce some superb quality single quinta port wines from the Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira vinyards.

Dow's Port, 2012

Senhora da Ribera Vintage Port (MAGNUM)

Ports coming from the south facing Touriga Franca vineyards, which in 2012 achieved perfect ripeness. There are also hints of blackberry, blackcurrant and black plum on the nose. Notes of Esteva (rock-rose) are also present, the result of the Touriga Nacional, which often expresses these scents. This is a vibrant wine, already quite complex and subtle. There is some spice from the relatively high proportion of Sousão. This is balanced with fresh acidity and minerality. On the palate the hallmark Dow’s drier style shows through in the long finish and ripe but firm tannins.

Vintage Port SINGLE BOTTLE 75cl

Reviews
"Very inky in hue, this is very tight indeed, with classic Dow dryness/austerity – firm tannins and a yet to be mined concentrated seam of minerals, black currant, berry and cherry. At this very early stage of its life, it means you are more conscious of the spirit, but this positively unshowy Port plainly has a long life ahead given its deep reserves of fruit and imposing structure. Impressively hewn."Sarah Ahmed www.thewinedetective.co.uk

Vintage Port

*** 100 Points Wine Spectator ***

This has a superb nose of rich, ripe berry fruit with the typical slightly austere and firm reserve of Dow. Analytically drier than usual, it is still blessed with dense fruit on the palate, a magnificent structure, weight and impressively long finish. On this showing, Dow is a strong candidate for wine of the vintage.

Dow's Port, 2005

Senhora da Ribeira

Near opaque, blue/black colour. Huge concentration provides an aromatic explosion of violets and rockrose. This is a full-bodied wine bursting with rich plummy, cassis flavours. In the mouth, typical Dow peppery overtones and the classic drier edge. Temperature control during fermentation (robotic lagares), combined with the ripeness of the grapes gave an excellent structure and balance.

Rare Magnum Format.

94 Points - Wine Advocate

Reviews:
"The complex aromatics of the opaque, black-colored 2003 Dow Vintage Port display chocolate, dried oak, black cherries, blackberries, copious spices, and a myriad flowers. This fresh, backward wine offers a medium to full-bodied, deeply concentrated core of spice-laced dark fruits. Softly-textured and seductive in the mid-palate, it boasts abundant layers of candied Damson plums, blueberries, black cherries, molasses, and hints of chocolate before revealing its firm structure. Extremely youthful and primary, this exceptional effort demands patience.

"Joshua Greene
A classical wine in a compact vintage, this presents the schist-driven, spicy tannins of Douro grapes along with their plump, juicy freshness. It's plummy, rich and lasting, ready to drink with an almond tart.

Vintage Port

**94 Points** Robert Parker

Reviews
"An opaque blue/purple color (typical of this vintage's top offerings) is followed by a strikingly provocative aromatic display (flowers, licorice, blackberries, and cassis). This firmly-structured, classic, tightly-knit, restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant, it is a beautiful, classically structured port that will age gracefully. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030." Robert Parker

Dow's Port, 1995

Quinta do Bomfin Vintage Port

Quinta do Bomfim , Dow's finest vineyard, acquired and planted by the firm in 1980, is situated in perhaps the most favourable location in the Upper Douro. This quinta classified 'A' grade, forms the core of Dow's famed Vintage Ports. In 'non-declared' years, the quinta produces wines of consistently high quality, which are selected and bottled as Dow's Quinta do Bomfim. These wines are treated in all respects as Vintage Port and therefore should be stored lying down and decanted before serving. Quinta do Bomfim wines are normally ready to drink from about its tenth year but will also benefit by keeping for many more years.

Reviews
"Deep garnet colour. The nose is just beginning to evolve into musky, dried plum and raisin aromas with whiffs of tree bark, nutmeg, cumin and cloves. The palate is seriously big and voluptuous with medium to high acidity and a medium to firm level of fine tannins. Very long finish." In Asia.

"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 the finish.
