Dow's Port, 1970

Vintage Port

Description and Reviews:
Dow's 1970 Vintage Port will make a fabulous 50th Birthday or Anniversary gift in 2020.

Reviews:
Sweet, voluptuous bouquet. Coffee and cinnamon tastes. So beautifully balanced and elegant. Stunningly poised. A 1970 like this is sheer perfection and exactly what great, mature Vintage Port should be.

“Exceptionally deep crimson with remarkably little evolution and few orangey hints. Very lively, even a hint of orange peel. Lots of concentration and life. Quite animal too. Very sweet and impressive with a great combination of richness and structure. This is serious wine with a serious future. Long and well balanced”.

“Youthful looking dark, vibrant purplish-ruby colour with enticing mint, licorice and raspberry fruit intertwined on the nose and palate. The '70 Dow is still on the upswing and the structure depicts that this VP will only continue its fine evolution and actually improve. Great depth of flavours and a streak of tobacco leaf barely perceptible on the unbelievably lengthy finish”.

“1970 produced some truly great wines which are only just ready to broach. Dow and Graham fall into this category and must rank among the 20th century’s great vintage ports”.
