2016 Dow's LBV Port

92 Points James Suckling
In stock
This superb LBV (Late Bottled Vintage) Port drinks rather like a 15 year old Vintage! For a little more money than basic Tawny, Late Bottled Vintage is a far more concentrated and serious fruit selection, with Vintage-level fruit given extra years pre-aging in oak for rounded, ready flavours. Dow's lead the LBV market with a full bodied style that's powerful and chocolatey yet fresh, carrying sweetness and body to a long, complex and dry finish. Impressive wine.

Its Origins

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine and Spirits Magazine

"Finely integrated and luscious, this is the kind of baby Vintage Port an LBV should aspire to be: Dark-fruited, the wine’s juicy wild-blueberry flavors have energy and supple grace. It could find a home with braised game, like boar, and after, with a cheese course."

92/100 James Suckling

"Blackberries with some dried fruit and hints of sultanas. Slightly lifted. It’s medium-bodied with lovely sweetness and a lightly chewy and grippy ending that turns sweet and slightly dry at the end. Delicious Port."

92/100 Wine Spectator

"Solid, with a polished set of violet, plum cake, blackberry reduction and ganache flavours cruising through and an echo of Black Forest cake lingering on the finish. This would do nicely in a decanter over a weekend."
