1980 Dow

Post by djewesbury » 15:49 Sun 11 Oct 2015

I've had a few light- or heat-affected bottles of this in the last couple of years so was apprehensive about this bottle but it was wonderful and lived up to the descriptions I've read and heard. It was dark, with a brown in the dark red but without a large clear rim. I didn't take a detailed note but I found this very satisfying, full and spicy, clean at the entry and lightly dry in the finish, which was long and cedary. Really good port. Drunk after a 5-hour decant.
