Liquid gorgeous! Accessible far earlier than vintage port. Dow's is owned by the famous Symington family , the vice regals of port otherwise known as Symington Family Estates. Perfect as a dessert on its own or with Black Forest cake.

Port food pairings: Roquefort, Cheddar, Stilton cheese, dark chocolate-themed desserts, crème brûlée, variety of nuts.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
