Wine 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.
