2015 Dow Senhora da Ribeira

Post by AHB » 18:20 Sun 29 Oct 2017

A delicate, fragrant port with a high acidity core and gentle tannins. The fruit is refined and elegant with lovely flower perfumes infusing the palate. Surprisingly for Dow, the finish is a little sweet and sticky. This clearly has the acidity to last and evolve but feels like a port which will be gentle and elegant into its middle-age. 89-91. An extended tasting over 4 days.
