1970 Dow

Post by AHB » 08:58 Mon 28 Dec 2015

Bottled by Courtenay Wines (International) Ltd of London NW11. A lovely mature red colour, brick red. A wonderful nose, rich and full of spiced mature fruit. Delicious on the palate, full of spiced fruit but still rather dry. Lots of brandy shows on the aftertaste before a lovely spiced, sweet and sticky fruit finish. The Dow dryness shows in the middle of the finish. A little too dry for my taste. 91/100.

Tasted at the Berry Brothers Port Walk on 26 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
