Wine & Spirits Magazine: "Perhaps the wine of the vintage"
Wine & Spirits Magazine 94 points

Wine & Spirits Magazine (94 points):
"This is the second release from their Douro Superior quinta across the river from Vesuvio – and it is a Knockout. When first poured, the aroma seems grapey and unformed. But give it plenty of time, perhaps a day in a decanter, for the power and impact of the wine to show. It grows into a gentle giant, with the potency of oregano, as though of esteva on steroids, hard to get all of it into the mouth or the brain at once. The wine is gripping, both voluptuous and tight, tasting like an old field blend of the varied Douro vines, wild as crushed berries and herbs. Cellar it to see what it may become – perhaps the wine of the vintage."

Penge & Privatøkonomi ("Bedste Vintage Port"):
"Smuk og klassisk. Med 18 år på bagen får vi alt det gode fra moden vintage portvin. Her er en kompleks næse af brombærsyltetøj, neglelak, ny asfalt og mentol. Den varmende alkohol dominerer umiddelbart munden, inden en blød fylde tager over. Dow's Quinta Senhora da Ribeira afslutter svagt tannisk og efterlader en kolossal eftersmag af bitter chokolade og sorte kirsebær. Smuk, klassisk og perfekt moden vin, der tigger om at få hevet proppen af nu."
