    April 14, 2018 - 93/100

    A demi bottle of vintage 2003 to end the night, a first lineup this season at open air by the riverbank.

    Firm and dense, with solid blackberry and black currant jam. Like all port, heavy on the alco side, 20% abv, but untraceable in the bouquet - still, it leaves a minor burning sensation at the back of the throat.

    Paired with shisha, and it worked together just fine.

    (Dow Porto Vintage) Nice, poised, deep, berry and chocolate nose; rich, berry, port palate showing poise and depth already; long finish

    (Dow's Vintage Port) Refined. Elegant. This has great style. Chocolate and smoke. Damsons. This has great purity. Beautiful weight and texture. Stunning finesse here. Wonderful balance. Superb, ripe tannins coated in a seamless layer of fruit. Great potential. Possibly wine of the vintage.
