2004 Douro

2004 Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port, Douro

Rolling out the red carpet for yet another sublime Late Bottled Vintage Port. I opened this to drink with my lamb. You must trust me on this, meat and LBV are supposed to be together. You want to talk about meant to be........? This is it.

Dark, saturated purple, very vivid. Lovely bouquet, just dark berries, slight jamminess, very fresh. Good structure, grippy tannins, long finish - all that I love about LBV. This is my little secret indulgence. The Portuguese are hairy marauders, but damn they have some great wines.
