This quinta, situated in the heart of the Port vineyards, always forms the backbone of Dow's Ports. It makes a densely textured wine, powerful and with immense dusty tannins. These are backed by ripe black fruits, a good balance between sweet and dry, with a good shot of acidity. This complex Port needs to age for many years. Drink from 2028.
