2003 Dow's LBV

Post by Portman » 15:17 Mon 06 Apr 2009

Served at a restaurant from a bottle opened at an undedetermined time.

Jammy and smooth, with very few tannins. Not very complex relative to other LBVs. I won't be seeking this out again.

PS - My first TN here, hope I'm complying with site protocals. Please inform if not. Portman

Perfectly done - named correctly (vintage, then shipper, then type of port)

Succinct note that tells you all you need to know.

I think it’s always worth having another go with restaurant Ports. Whilst some seem to survive pretty well, others have almost no chance of surviving being opened for long lengths of time in a hot bar.
