NV Dow's Crusted - bottled 2003

Post by DRT » 18:02 Fri 06 Apr 2012

Decanted 1 hour.

Lots of perfumed red fruit on the nose. Full and thick in the mouth, with blackcurrant and lots of dry tannin. Parma violets! Definitely Parma Violets in the mid-palate. A long dry finish.

Very nice port.

If this is a good example from which to judge, the current offer of Dow's Crusted 2004 @ £11.85 per bottle at Asda looks like exceptionally good value!
