Dow's 1966 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Dow’s 1966 Vintage Port is a gorgeous example of the year, offering intense, deeply concentrated cherry liqueur, toffee, candied fig, maple syrup, datecake and membrillo qualities and a vibrant, spicy overtone. Silky and seamless in texture and finely detailed, the 1966 seduces with its balance and elegance rather than opulence and power, which is fully in keeping with the house style. Its intense sweetness is mitigated by its sharp delineation and energy. I have no doubt it will outlive 1962-vintage people like me. This is a wonderfully flexible Port to serve with all sorts of not-too-sweet, savory desserts and, especially, mild cow’s milk blue cheeses. Jan 6, 2020.
