" 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.

Dow's

View all from Dow's
For over two centuries the name of DOW has been associated with the finest Port from the vineyards of the Upper Douro Valley. Throughout the 20th Century and into the 21st, the Symington family has built on the legacy of the preceding Silva and Dow families. Generations of Symington winemakers have worked at the Dow's vineyards: Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira, creating from them Dow's superbly concentrated wines that are 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 recognizable hallmark of the wines from this great Port house.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Fall is Port Weather!

"I feel in love with this one the second I pulled the cork. Aromas of cassis, licorice and blueberries tantalized the nose. Its firmly structured mouth evolved from grapes and dates to sweet spices, molasses and coco. Pair this one for a special occasion with some richer dark chocolate or enjoy on its own on these colder nights."
