Dow’s 1994 Vintage Port is drinking beautifully right now – it’s one of our best vintages in recent history. It balances opulent red fruits with mineral and eucalyptus tones and has the Dow’s characteristic drier finish. Its great depth and structure make it delicious now but it will also continue to age in the bottle for years to come. Declared Vintage Port is made only in the best of the best years and represents less than two percent of all Port made. It is sourced from Dow’s top vineyards, primarily Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira, and aged for two years in barrel before bottling.
Serving and pairing suggestions
The vintage Port needs to be decanted since it is aged in a bottle. Serve it in a glass with at least a six-ounce capacity so that you may appreciate the wine’s aromas. Vintage Port is best served with creamy blue cheeses such as Point Reyes Original Blue or a fine Stilton or Roquefort. Once opened it should be consumed within a few days.
