Winery notes (2011 Vintage)
"Dow's 2011 Late Bottled Vintage is a single harvest wine, differing primarily from a "declared" Vintage Port in that, to show their true potential, LBVs require a longer maturation period in seasoned oak vats. The wine is fully mature and ready for immediate consumption and can be served with no need for decanting. LBVs are very stable and will keep their freshness for a further week or so after opening. Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port comes from the same vineyards and shares the same winemaking with Wine Spectator's Number One wine of 2014, Dow's 2011 Vintage Port. Unlike many Port shippers, it is only in occasional years of exceptional quality that Dow's releases an LBV, which is why we believe that our wine stands out well above any alternative.
The wine has a deep ruby colour, and a fine complex nose with layers of dark fruits, and hints of violets and cigar box aromas. The well-balanced palate is muscular and full-bodied, with a great purity of style, and its firm tannins hold on into a long and spicy, peppery finish. Dow's trademark drier style is much in evidence throughout.
Dow's LBV is a wonderfully versatile wine which harmonises beautifully with a variety of end-of-meal dishes, from the classic Port and mature cheese combination, both creamy and hard, and of course chocolate desserts & mousses and cakes."
