Dow’s Vintage Porto 2007

Dow’s, Porto, Vintage 2007 This baby of a Port smells of sweet black fruits, oranges, candied berries, a notion of flowers and the spirit that fortified it. In the mouth it is dense yet already smoothing out, approachable with a silky character, very much so considering the youthful state of this wine. Lay this away f0r the kids but you might be tempted to open it in 5-10 years giving its already apparent accessibility. The grapes were sourced from Quita do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira and are treated to a combination of foot and robotic treading in the lagares. Bottled in 2005 by Symington Family Estates in Oporto 20% $71.99 at Bottle Barn Dow’s
