Dow's 30 Year Tawny Christmas Port
TASTING NOTES: Our Dow's 30 Year Tawny Christmas Port delivered in a holiday wine tote that is sure to bring holiday spirit. TOTE WILL VARY FROM TIME TO TIME.
Dow's 30 Years Old Tawny is made exclusively from grapes sourced at "A"classified vineyards (the highest), which includes Dow's Quinta do Bomfim and Quintada Senhora da Ribeira, two of the very best vineyards in the Douro valley. This enviable position is reflected in the excellent quality and consistency of the style evident in Dow's 30 Years Old Tawny.
This 30 Years Old Port is a beautifully mature wine of great distinction. Pale and delicate, it has superb complexity and style. With a concentrated and nutty nose and a full, fresh and lingering finish. It is a very skillful blend, creating an excellent balance between nutty oak and raisin fruit flavors.
Gorgeous, with a beguilingly creamy mouthfeel that lets waves of date, fig, persimmon, golden raisin, toffee and praline glide along while notes of ginger and juniper flash underneath. Manages to be viscous and light-footed at the same time. Drink now.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV 30 Years Tawny Port was bottled in 2013 with a bar-top cork and 120 grams per liter of residual sugar. This muscular Tawny is dry, concentrated and stern at times. Although on paper it doesn't have much less sugar than the Graham's this issue, the balance is different. It starts slow, then shows some notable bite on the finish. Gracefully constructed and sensually textured, it's never too thick or overpowering, but it always seems dense and intense anyway. Its complexity and focus are impressive. Then, it finishes rather dry. This was certainly one of the stars here. As always, these last indefinitely, barring cork failures. They are not really meant to be held, though.
A superbly dense, concentrated wine so rich in flavor that it almost has a brooding, dark quality. The hint of medicinal character just gives all this intensity a lift, and goes with flavors of roasted nuts and licorice. The aftertaste has just the right acidity.
