Dow's Colheita Port 1997, Douro, Portugal: This lovely fortified dessert wine was estate bottled in 2007. It was aged 10 years before being released from the winery, much like 10-Year-Old Tawy Ports are, and it too does not require decanting as there is not sediment. However, a Colheita Port differs from a Tawny in that a Colheita is made from the grapes grown in a single vineyard, rather than a blend of several vineyards. This offers aromas of black fruit, vanilla spice, coffee and chocolate. A rich, luxurious port with layers of toffee, nuts and caramel on the finish.
