“2015 Dow’s Quinta do Bomfim Vintage Port – When tasting this again at Bomfim with Dominic Symington, he commented: “this is wine on steroids, it is not yet Port!” Both the aromatic and palate profile stuck to this theme and it resonated each of the four days of evaluation. Fresh floral fragrances, Cheri Suisse Liqueur and an herbal/minty essence combined with ripe grape notes, creating an opulent bouquet. Full-bodied by day 2 and even weightier by the fourth; with mink-like texture … it was a pleasure to slowly sip. Chiseled tannins joined laser-focused acidity to deliver an excellent foundation for aging; 40 years without even trying. Profound in that it presents a lighter more delicate sensation, even though at this Bomfim’s core it is deeply concentrated and chewy, with strawberry / marionberry flavors that end fresh and with great length. I was very close to scoring a point higher, but will wait for another bottle to re-calibrate if need be. An intense Dow’s SQVP, I can’t remember any other Bomfim at this lofty level!”

"This quinta, situated in the heart of the Port vineyards, always forms the backbone of Dow's Ports. It makes a densely textured wine, powerful and with immense dusty tannins. These are backed by ripe black fruits, a good balance between sweet and dry, with a good shot of acidity. This complex Port needs to age for many years. Drink from 2028."
