1963 Dow

The mid red colour of early maturity; 50% opaque. Over-ripe blood oranges on the nose, lots of sweet redcurrant. Sharp acidity at the fore of the palate, restrained fruit and soft tannins - dry profile. Lots of tobacco and leather, concentrated. Good elegance on the aftertaste and a big, red jelly bean finish of terrific length. Lovely port. 93/100. Drunk 2 April 2011 after 3 hours decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
