  • not so good of a bottle, very light, high alcohol burn

    Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment

  • Ruby-garnet core fading to thin root beer at the rim, nice depth of color. Caramel and horsey nose. The palate shows its alcohol but is not spoilt by it, despite a general lack of material here. This bottle is showing mostly tawny, but not heavy or unpleasantly oxidized, and is really quite fine sipping because of its excellent balance. A much better showing than I was expecting based on this bottle's condition. Base neck, slightly raised cork, slight seepage. Oporto bottled EWR import.

  • Went to the cellar to open an older port and came across this bottle with no label and unable to see the cork. To my surprise it was a Dow '55 that I did not inventory. I will drink this over the next week or two as a glass a night is all I need. The color is clean and a vibrant dark rose. The wine is not showing a lot of age, instead wonderful flavor and the taste is on the palate after 60 seconds, smooth and I am licking my lips. Oh my, wish I had a couple of more.
