NV Dow Christmas ruby reserve

Post by AHB » 23:12 Wed 07 Jan 2015

A ruby port, which the back label states has been made from a blend specially selected to provide "Christmas notes" of nutmeg and fruit.

Rather lightweight and disappointing. Perfectly decent ruby port with a nice soft fruitiness and gentle tannins, a touch short on the finish. Nothing wrong with the port, but never going to be a memorable drinking experience. 82/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
