K&L Notes

Dow produces one of the most consistently long lived ports of all the great houses, and in a vintage as classic as 1977, that means that at 40 years of age, it is truly hitting its stride. A fantastic wine.

    For world-class wines, this is a steal. From a legendary vintage that is drinking in its prime, this is one beautiful bottle of porto. Black cherry, leather, cocoa and herbal mint notes with a beautiful texture and great acidity for freshness and balance. The finish is complex and long. One could easily spend much more on a bottle of wine not nearly as good.

    This vintage port is bursting with dark fruit on the nose that transfers immediately to the front palate upon tipping the glass. The balance and structure of this wine keep the fruit from overpowering the mouthfeel, leaving all of your senses touched just right by every delicate drop. Even those unaccustomed to fortified wines will enjoy the complexity and pure joy of this amazing port!

    This is an absolutely delicious, impeccably balanced bottle of port from the great 1977 vintage. Dow's style is relatively drier than most of the other houses, except perhaps Taylor's, and after 40 years of ageing, it has reached prime drinking: beautiful florals, perfectly sweet fruits and a graceful mouth feel all combine to make this one of the more memorable vintage ports I have yet to enjoy. A real treat, and a perfect gift to mark that 40th birthday or anniversary.

    A once in a generation vintage. It's utterly superb across the board. The Dow shows remarkably savory with a wonderfully bright acidity and a core of dark fruits. For someone who doesn't drink an enormous amount of vintage port (not for lack of trying...), I was stunned at just how fresh and youthful this 40 year old wine feels. The perfect way to end a meal, not too sweet, but just sweet enough to scratch your itch for dessert.
