Shows the intense ripeness of the vintage with hints of raisins and other dried fruits. Full-bodied, medium sweet and so very velvety. A big mouthful. Superb. Just starting to open.

It has a deeper in colour than the Fonseca, the Dow 2000 has a lifted nose with fruitcake, damson, black plum, a touch of nail varnish and apricots. The more that you inhale its perfume the more complex it seems. The palate is full-bodied, quite spicy on the entry but very austere in the middle. Firm tannins, robust, a touch of dryness towards the earthy finish. Nice persistency on the finish, those peppery motes flittering about the mouth. Drink 2020-2050+ Tasted May 2009.

Extremely charming and dense with great layers of flavour. This is very clever wine that should drink well virtually throughout its life. There is no shortage of tannin underneath but the voluptuous start is already engaging.

It has weight and spice, but also a delicious perfume, layered through a smooth, opulent texture.

There's a solid finishing kick of fruit and grip.—Blind 2000 Vintage Port retrospective (March 2021). Drink now through 2040. 9,000 cases made, 3,500 cases imported. — JM

This firmly-structured classic tightly-knit restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant it is a beautiful classically structured port that will age gracefully. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.
