NV Dow 20yo Tawny

Post by benread » 11:43 Sun 22 Feb 2009

A valentines present from my wife, consumed last night with no decanting. It was a half bottle.

Colour: For a 20yo this was unexpectly dark. More of a red than brown colour to it.

Nose: Failt light on the nose despite much encouragement in the glass.

Taste: liquid raisins kept coming to mind!

I have no idea what this cost so cannot comment on value. I would however happily drink it on a more regular basis. I was not at all concerned when the wife announced Friday night's hangover had got the better of her and that I would have to drink her glass too!
