Winemaker's Notes:

Rich ruby color. On the nose packed with rich and concentrated strawberry fruit, and hints of spices. On the palate, full fruit flavors, well balanced, and with a long slightly dry finish that is the hallmark of all Dow's Ports.

Dow's Trademark pairs wonderfully with rich, nutty or chocolate desserts, as well as strong cheeses.

Port is best served in classic Port wine glassware or white wine glasses. Avoid cordial or liqueur glasses as they are too small to fully appreciate the wine's aromas.

About Dow's:

Dow's has been producing top Ports for over two centuries. One of the first companies to establish its own vineyards, Dow's acquired Senhora da Ribeira, located in the remote Upper Douro, in 1890 and Bomfim, which lies in the heart of Alto Douro, in 1896. Their respective wines, Ribeira with its soft fruit and violet aromas, and Bomfim with its concentrated intensity, provide the backbone to the recognized drier style of Dow's Ports. In 1912, Andrew James Symington became a partner in Dow's and today, five members of the fourth generation Symington family own and manage this historic house.
