2000 Dows Vintage Port Reviews

99 Pointz James Suckling

“Shows the intense ripeness of the vintage with hints of raisins and other dried fruits. Full-bodied, medium sweet and so very velvety. A big mouthful. Superb. Just starting to open.”

95 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“An impressively concentrated wine, showing the hallmark Dow’s dry edge, but still full of ripe fruit, flavors of black plums and berries. It has weight and spice, but also a delicious perfume, layered through a smooth, opulent texture.”

94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“An opaque blue/purple color (typical of this vintage's top offerings) is followed by a strikingly provocative aromatic display (flowers, licorice, blackberries, and cassis). This firmly structured, classic, tightly-knit, restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant, it is a beautiful, classically structured port that will age gracefully.”

94 Pointz Wine Spectator

“This is on point now, with a mix of cassis, cherry paste, and warmed fig fruit that has some youthful energy even as it has melded with bramble, licorice snap, and Black Forest cake notes. There's a solid finishing kick of fruit and grip.”

93 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“Saturated bright ruby. Primary, backward aromas of cassis, redcurrant, licorice, minerals, bitter chocolate, and spices. Penetrating, structured, and powerful. Not hugely sweet but boasts superb flavor definition and impressive extract. A very unevolved port that's best today on the expanding finish, which features notes of cassis, violet, dark chocolate, and peaty earth and terrific grip and thrust.”
