1997 Dows Vintage Port Reviews

95 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Warm and inviting, with a worn leather feel to the mix of dried anise, espresso, bittersweet cocoa, steeped fig, and mulled currant notes, which move seamlessly together through the buckwheat-edged finish. There's plenty here to like now, but this has ample energy for additional development.”

94 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“Mouthfilling and round, without any sharp edges, but this wine remains extremely firm and dense, with several decades of life ahead of it. Dried fig, chocolate, and black licorice flavors only hint at what lies ahead.”

92 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“Good full ruby. Lightly floral aromas of blackcurrant, maple syrup, mocha, espresso, and fresh herbs. Lush and medium-sweet, with very good intensity, bright acidity, and a deep, tight core of fruit. Subtle and juicy rather than unctuous or powerful, and impeccably balanced. Long, youthfully aggressive finish features a note of dark chocolate and sneaky persistence.”
