Review

All the development work undertaken in the last 25 years in the vineyards and in Dow's winery is made abundantly clear more so in their LBV than in any other wine. Its rich aroma of spicy cherries forestalls a port that's full-bodied and rich, as well as perfectly balanced, with delicate tannins and fine acidity. The classic dry touch found on the finish of the house's wines can be felt too on the Late Bottled Vintage. This absolute marvel, extensively awarded on an international level, works wonderfully well with cheeses, dried fruits and nuts, and dark chocolate.

sound but not exceptional

Dow's LBV has generally been a reliable buy over the years, the 2011 vintage does not seem as complex or to have the raisiny depths that it has sometimes achieved in the past. Perfectly acceptable though at it's pricepoint.

perfecta relación calidad/precio

los LBV son una puerta de entrada al fantástico mundo del Oporto, permiten tocar con el dedo, y a menor coste, las sensaciones de un Vintage. color negro oscuro, aromas a fruta madura. boca redonda, equilibrada y con alguna estructura. este vino es para beber ahora, esta en un punto perfecto. fuente de placer, con el lado dulce perfectamente calibrado y una final muy larga!!
