2016 Dow's

A great vintage across Europe, Port was no different. This has opulent fruit, spice, and a slightly leafy lift on the finish. Really well balanced.

TASTING NOTES

Extremely dark blackish crimson (like Graham 2016!). Rather savoury and minerally on the nose. Such a strong, almost minty personality. Lovely blend of freshness and ripeness, though some may reproach it for slightly less tannins than others. Lovely briny impact. Relatively forward, possibly tempting to drink it quite young?
