Dow's Quinta do Bomfim 1965

Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson critic

World of Fine Wine (magazine) source
2012 tasting note year

Slightly darker and blacker in hue than the Malvedos; scented, but seemingly hollow on the nose, and again a touch roasted; typically firm and dry in the Dow style, with powerful tannins mid-palate but retaining the purity of fruit at its core, and big, peppery tannins linger on to the finish.  Standing up well and should continue to hold up for another decade at least.

Score: 15.5/20

Serena Sutcliffe MW critic

2002 tasting note year

Great fruit nose, even redcurrants.  Biscuits and toast on the palate with strawberry jam.  Very liquorice and 'rubbery'.  Lots of fruit too.  Delicious.

1998 tasting note year

Attractive colour, medium ruby. Surprisingly sweet nose and palate. Fragrant. Soft, fleshy, fruit. Delicious!

Score: 3 Stars

James Suckling critic

Vintage Port (book, Suckling, 1990) source
1990 tasting note year

Only about 50 cases of this wine were made.  It has super balance with wonderful raspberry notes on the palate and an extremely firm tannin backbone. This wine will improve with age.
