Description and Reviews:
The structured, ungenerous dark ruby-colored 2003 Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port offers a nose of tobacco, smoke, and black fruits. Its tannic character exhibits flavors of stones, black plums, blackberries, boysenberries, and hints of cigar box. Appealingly expressive yet firm, this wine softened slightly over a 4 day period, revealing notes of spicy molasses. It will be at its best between 2018 and 2028.
18/20 Janis Robinson
"Purplish crimson. Vigorous, savoury, not especially sweet. Grown-up vintage port. Lovely weight and integration. Already hints at complex flavours to come. Great charge of all the elements needed. Later note: Very fresh and vigorous - even slightly green. A little bit simple. Not quite enough tannin or concentration. Symingtons' less famous but often high achieving label.Date tasted 20th May 05.
