9998 - Dow Tawny Port 20 year old
Mellow, round, nutty middle...
Nov 03, 2010
1 star 1 star 1 star
Dow is one of the oldest Port wineries, dating to 1798. Fruit is from the Upper Douro region of Portugal.This Dow 20 Year Tawny Port is light to medium brick red in the glass. Aromas are light and sweet, oozing tobacco and tar.On the palate, there is a hot alcohol blast with the sweetness. This rolls along into a mellow, round, nutty middle, with an even, lingering finish. Nice. Three stars out of five, with a plus for plushness.More reviews at spiritofwine.blogspot.com.

Big nose starts you off with mint and spice, then the fruit drives your tongue with cassis and rubarb. This wine may have the best guts to last the longest of all the vintages that I've tried.  Good for 10+ years.

Big flavors again on this fruit forward but well structure portugal wine.  Nice mint and dark chocolate stand out immediately to me, and are followed by cherries and plum.

THis Portuguese wine is a great example of the high quality non-port wines coming out of that country.  The vanilla oak wraps around this fruit forward wine - tastes like cherries covered in raspberry sauce, topped with granite.

Very Basic

This is what you would expect from a restraunts low end port wines.  The flavors of port are there but its so watered down compared to other ports.  Not sure what the price is on this wine but anything over 12 bucks is too much.

Plump Port

This was a very "plump" wine with lots of coffee and raisin flavors filling your mouth by the gobs.  This was a wonderful after dinner drink and was sooo yummy before bed.  Helped me sleep.

Good and Creamy

Very Creamy Port wine that delivers a delicious Root Beer Float like flavor on the palate.  Much lighter than I expected but overall good structure and a great buy for the money.

Good Port, that most should be able to fall in love with.  A little bit simple to me compared to other ports in this price range, but easy to find and a very safe choice.  Chocolate, rasins, carmel and black liquorice.

Wonderful Porto...

Popped and poured. After 9 reds this wine was like jetfuel. Explosive nose of caramel, butterscotch, brandied raisins and quite a bit of heat. Should have lowered the temp a bit. Nice sweetness and mouthfeel. Quite spicy, almost like a single malt scotch spiciness. This went wonderfully with a Roaring Forties Bleu Cheese. Great porto.

1977 - Dow Vintage Port Silver Jubilee
Dows silver jubilee does it
Feb 04, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star

After beginning with a Taittinger rose, and a 1986 Petrus, I feared the Dows Silver Jubilee might not hold up.  It not only perfectly complimented our meal, champagne, and wines, but was perfect with the Cuban cigars, as well. The tannins were very smooth.  The acohol was in complete balance with the fruit of the wine.  This is a port not to be missed.

Lacking eloquence and proper terminology (bear with me...I'm learning), let me just say this wine was an absolute treat. My first Port of any kind, and it really lived up to all the hype (mostly manufactured by my own inflated expectations). I can't wait to have more More MORE!
