Deep, dark colour although paling at the rim. Mature fruit, elegant, rich dark and spicy. A bit of green pepper and five spice here. Full, rich, dark and earthy palate.

Vintage Port (Library stock from Dows)
** These bottles are library stock from Dows cellars in Oporto and have perfect provenance ***
"Drinking beautifully now at early optimal maturity, this has at least another few years of development in front of it and many years of drinking pleasure after that. Now it is nicely developed, well integrated, juicy and ripe with a nice balance between its power, weight, and texture; it is succulent but still elegant. Delicious. Really excellent."

Crusted Port (Bottled in 1985)
Crusted port is usually a blend of port wine from several vintages, although single vintage crusted ports have sometimes been made in the past. Unlike vintage port, which has to be sourced from grapes from a single vintage, crusted port affords the port blender the opportunity to make best use of the varying characteristics of different vintages. Crusted port is bottled unfiltered, and sealed with a driven cork. Like vintage port it needs to be decanted before drinking. Although crusted ports will improve with age, the blender often seeks to make these wines approachable at a younger age than for vintage ports.
