Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Deep ruby hue. Rich, grape-y and sweet, with a hint of pine, Christmas spices and leather. Leaves a long finish on the palate. (May 2012)
Dow’s LBV is a full rich Port with spicy ripe fruit flavours and an elegant aromatic nose. Well rounded on the palate and has the traditional Dow’s drier finish which makes it one of the finest LBV Ports available.
|Wine maker notes
|These wines come from the same vineyards that, in a year when a Vintage is "declared", produce Vintage Port. However, as they are bottled between the fourth and sixth year after the harvest, they mature more quickly and are ready to drink much sooner.
