It is very rare for Dow's to declare two Vintage Ports successively. Only a declaration is made in those years when the quality of wines is truly exceptional. Usually, this happens only about three times in every decade, and very rarely - except in exceptional circumstances - in two consecutive years.
Grapes: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão, Alicante Bouschet and old vine with a mixture of grape varieties.
It is rare to see the intensity and depth of color that this wine presents. The freshness of the floral aromas is very appealing with its predominance of stems, whose flowers grow spontaneously in the hills around Senhora da Ribeira. In the mouth it is full-bodied, rich and powerful, with black fruits in evidence. The excellent ripeness finds a point of balance for the tannins that give an excellent structure. Typically Dow's at the end of the mouth austere and very dry than many other ports. The intense flavors of ripe black fruit lengthen on the palate.
Charles Symington comments:
"This is one of the best Dow's Vintage Ports that I've made to date. I believe this wine deserves a place next to the most recent Vintage Dow's: 2016, 2011 and 2007. In my opinion, it shows potential to be among the great classics Dow's ".
