Dow's 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port

The 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend bottled in 2021 with a bar-top cork and 106 grams of residual sugar after some six years in oak. Elegant and chock-full of fruit, this has some aromatic impact and reasonable depth. This is not as exuberant or as sweet in perception as the Graham's this report (that's a fairly common statement), but it walks down the middle of the road perfectly, often reasonably expressive and quite delicious. At first, it doesn't stand out as much compared to its Symington siblings this report (the Cockburn's and Graham's), seeming drier and more stolid, but the overall balance might be better, and it is certainly very tasty. There's a real backbone supporting the fruit. After a bit of time, this came around perfectly. Of the three, I'd pick the Graham's, while the Cockburn's fell off after a very impressive start. Reasonable minds might differ. They are all excellent. As with its siblings, it should hold well throughout the decade, maybe more, although that is not really the point with this wine. 90 PointsWine Advocate, July 2021
