#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014
Aromatic and floral, with an excellent balance of fruit, tannin and acidity. The palate starts off with fresh green figs and ends with bitter chocolate. There is fresh acidity and a notable minerality, and no hint of any raisining or overripeness on the very long finish.
Dow's 2011 Vintage Port can be enjoyed anytime and pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts and hard cheeses like mature Cheddar or even with a soft goat's cheese.
