Dow's Trademark Finest Reserve Port
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
A dry wine, the sweetness overtaken by tannins, black currant stalkiness and acidity. It works well as a more serious style of Reserve Port, hinting at aging potential.
The NV Trademark Finest Reserve Port is a blend of typical regional grapes aged up to three years in used wood. It was bottled in October 2018 with 108 grams per liter of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. This has reasonable solidity and structure, but its best feature is the expression of fruit. It has fine flavor and finishes well. It doesn't seem quite as precise or as lifted as some here, but it presents the impression of seriousness rather than simply being a light quaffer. It does thin out a bit with aeration, but that's to be expected in this category.
A firm, crisp style, with intense chocolate and meat overtones to the rich, plush flavors of dried dark fruits and spice. There's good grip on the finish. Drink now.
