    November 5, 2012 - - Violet color. It's balanced with a full body. Polished texture with a long finish.

    March 13, 2010 - In agreement with the other notes. This was nice with a cigar--good but not quite outstanding. Very nice QPR.

    January 14, 2010 - Pretty ripe plum and background cherry liqueur. I like the fruit expression; it's clean, quality and interesting enough. Medium body with great balance - no heat, low/medium sweetness and elegance. Overall a good drinker.

    (Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port) This is a deeply coloured, concentrated wine, with a desne core and a rim that shows a little maturity, with an oxblood-mahogany hue. On the nose there are aromas of very slightly brawny fruit, dark with a slightly stewed character, but there is still an appealing perfume too, with notes of violets and flower petals. A fine entry on the palate, creamy but well composed, showing a lot of tannic grip through the midpalate, but still with plenty of fruit and texture. This wine blends very nicely a firm structure, sweet and nicely poised texture, savoury roast meat notes and a slightly chewy, savoury finish. A good wine.

    (Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port) A good depth of colour here. Nice woody-figgy fruit on the nose, and I sense a drier style than the non-vintage Crusted Port, which I tasted alongside this. Fine character. More reserved, but with a good sweetness nevertheless. Sandalwood, figs on the palate also, good fruit. Lots of grip here. A good style.
