Roy Hersh (FTLOP): "The greatest young Dow's Vintage Port to ever pass my lips!"
Wine Spectator 99 points & "Wine of the Year 2014"
Roy Hersh 98+ points

Wine Spectator (99 points & "Wine of the Year 2014"):
"Powerful, refined and luscious, with a surplus of dark plum, kirsch and cassis flavors that are unctuous and long. Shows plenty of grip, presenting a long, full finish, filled with Asian spice and raspberry tart accents. Rich and chocolaty. One for the ages. Best from 2030 through 2060."

Roy Hersh (FTLOP) (98+ points & "Best Vintage Port 2011):
A stunningly complex nose intermixed with violets, fragrant fresh figs and fennel, currants and tobacco. Amazing aromatics that kept my nose in the glass long before the first sip. Full-bodied and densely concentrated fruit, light and flowing across the palate, this is a Port for the ages with sweet plum and blackcurrant flavors that belie the notion that Dow's must be stylistically dry. It's gracefully adorned by warming spirit and chocolate. Moreover, the tensity and textural pleasure here are simply profound. Lean and muscular with amazing overall balance and iron-clad tannins that will take this long past our lifetime, the "finish" ... never quite does. This can be enjoyed right now and while young, rewarding patience well into the second half of the century. It is clearly the greatest young Dow's Vintage Port to ever pass my lips!"
