Dow's 40 Year Old Tawny Port
For an exquisitely aged port wine, Dow's 40 Year Old Tawny Port is an excellent choice. After an average of 40 years in oak barrels, this port has lost its red tones and has developed a beautiful greenish-gold color. It's flavors are deep and concentrated, with lots of dried fruit and walnut on the palate. The aroma also includes notes of raisin and vanilla, and this finish is long and acidic to cut through all the sweetness. It's a reasonable price for aged ports and won't benefit from any additional time in the wine cellar, so it's the perfect choice if you're looking for a top shelf port to enjoy right away. This is also a favorite among professional critics, with scores in the 90's.
