Dow's 2006 Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira Vintage Port was bottled in the spring of 2008, 116 years after the vineyard was originally purchased by Dow's in 1890. Inky purple-black colour with a deep garnet rim. Lovely fragrant nose of blackberry, rockrose, and clove. Full and generous palate with flavours of concentrated blackcurrant fruit and bitter chocolate, liquorice and spice, coated in ripe peppery tannins. One of the finest Ribeira wines that we have produced, it is sensational now, but will age very well indeed.
