The wine has a deep ruby colour, and a fine complex nose with layers of dark fruits, and hints of violets and cigar box aromas. The well-balanced palate is muscular and full-bodied, with a great purity of style, and its firm tannins hold on into a long and spicy, peppery finish. Dow's trademark drier style is much in evidence throughout.
Food Matching Dow's LBV is a wonderfully versatile wine which harmonises beautifully with a variety of end-of-meal dishes, from the classic Port and mature cheese combination,both creamy and hard, and of course chocolate desserts & mousses and cakes.
