Dow's Vintage Port 1983
Wine SpectatorVery stylish and big, with a classy balance of fruit and tannin. Deep ruby-purple, with a multidimensional nose of perfume and grapes, full-bodied, tannic and tightly knit. Best from 1996 through 1998.
Wine AdvocateThis is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977. The 1983 is rich, concentrated, very fruity, and magnificently perfumed, suggesting that it is going to mature early, long before the 1977.
