Dows Estate Selection PortAs my slightly numb head this morning testifies, this humble little bottle of port is very, very drinkable. At just £4.99 it is also rather good value although I am not convinced that the full price of £9.99 can quite be justified. My local WineRack has a stack on the counter for those tempted by impulse; they just knew I would take the bait...

Red WineWine Tasting Note: Dow's Estate Selection Port, NV, Douro, Portugal.
Available from WineRack for £4.99.

Good depth of fruit and a quite lovely fresh berry edge on first tasting. The palate is rounded and rich and ends dry with a little burst of tannin. Flavours are good with hints of chocolate, coffee, plum and spice. A fine ruby port. Alcohol 19%.

A lovely warming winter tipple and great with a mince pie; hence the solitary Waitrose specimen in the photo 'cause I had eaten all the others by the time I came to take the photo; ' love a mincepie, I do.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100 [3.75 out of 5]
