2003 Dow's Crusted Port

Post by angeleyes » 14:33 Sat 15 May 2010

Delicious. Very young, with stained tears. Mint, fennel, cherries, cranberries and blackberries. Barely sweet, but spicy, good acidity. Should age well, but is very drinkable right now.

My only complaint about Crusted Port - is that I drink them too young! I am convinced that Crusted Ports will age well, but I never manage to resist them when they are sitting in the cabinet waving to me saying "Me next! Me next!"
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
