75cl * 20% ABV * Douro, Portugal
The Bomfim vineyard has been the cornerstone of Dow's ever since the property was acquired in 1896. Its steep, south-facing slopes receive ample sunlight, reasonable rainfall and fresh breezes for perfect ripening of the grapes. In the years in which Dow's does not declare a Vintage, the best ports are bottled under this Bomfim label. Supple and elegant, showing layered flavours of cherries, raspberries and dark chocolate, alongside Dow's characteristic peppery tannins. Decant for a few hours before serving alongside chocolate desserts or blue cheeses.
