Description
2009 Dow's Senhora da Ribeira Vintage Port - 6 Bottles (0.75L)
In original wooden case - Port - Bottling year: 2011 - Portugal

2009 will be remembered in the Douro Valley as a year of low yields due mainly to the dry ripening season. Not surprisingly the year produced dense and concentrated wines, with deep inky colour, crisp acidity, wonderfully fine, complex fruit and big thick muscular tannins. The latter have provided that important quality known as ‘grip’ which denotes longevity in a vintage port. In this, and in their massive scale, the 2009 vintage ports recall some of the great iconic vintages of the early 20th century. Such colour intensity and tannin levels have certainly not been seen for at least two decades. If ever there was a vintage port for laying down, this is it.

Refined and fruity, delivering an array of balanced, lively flavors of
cream-infused raspberry and sweet cherry. Blueberry pie notes chime in on
the finish, with some peppery accents. Best from 2015 through 2028. 300
cases made

The port is very rare and hard to get . The port is in excellent condition and stored in a winecellar.
