2019 Dow Senhora da Ribeira

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Dow Senhora da Ribeira 2019 (half bottle cask sample). Deep crimson in colour, opaque. Fresh nose, pure sweet blackcurrant. Powerful acidity supports the blackcurrant, gentle tannins provide grip in the fruit; hints of peppercorn hiding in the fruit. Blackcurrant and dark chocolate aftertaste with good length. Nice Port, well put together; not complex or powerful but a fine SQVP for the short to medium term. 88/100. Opened 24-May-23. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!
