"2011 vintage Port is exceptional! I just got back from visiting Oporto last week where I tasted almost 50 samples, and I have to say that the 2011 is the best since the legendary 1994 - and perhaps even better. It reminds me of the 1966, or 1927."

James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (23/05/13)

"I have never been as excited by the launch of a clutch of vintage ports. The quality of the best examples, of which there are many, is outstanding."

Jancis Robinson MW, Financial Times (03/05/13)

"I think back to the young vintages I tasted over my more than 30 years as a wine critic and the book I wrote in 1989 called "Vintage Port." The 2011 vintage makes me think of some of the great classics such as 1966 to 1977. Some of the wines below have the green, stemmy edge in flavor with polished yet chewy tannins that great Port blenders always looked for in legendary years such as 1947 and 1927. I can't wait to taste more 2011 in few weeks."

James Suckling (28/04/13)

"....overall, the 2011s justify the hype that has fomented around their release. Collectively they form a delightful, occasionally profound set of young Ports with glistening futures ahead. While the fineness of the tannins and freshness may lure some to relish their precocious youth, there is no escaping the fact that few beverages surpass Port when they pass thirty years of age........these are truly wonderful Vintage Ports that will reward extended cellaring. Declarations are, more often than not, promises that are kept."

Neal Martin, 2011 Vintage Port Review, Wine Advocate, 28th May 2013

As you can see with the quotes above, the recently announced 2011 Vintage Port declaration has been met with tremendous praise around the world. This vintage is already being hailed as a great classic with comparisons being made to the outstanding 1994 vintage.

TASTING NOTE
A core of deep brick red fading to russet on the rim. A beautifully mature and complex nose, full of evocative, subtle nuances. Aromas of plum, fig and raisin blend with a mellow redolence of marzipan and butterscotch. Hints of cigar box, cedarwood and leather add an exotic dimension to the nose. The wine is seductively round and smooth with discreet, beautifully integrated tannins adding an attractive dryness and grip. The wine is full of rich, fruit cake flavors with some fresh plum character emerging on the long finish.

97 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A serious Port in the making, with dark currant paste, warmed fig sauce and blackberry reduction flavors pouring through. The brambly grip is deeply embedded and there are gorgeous ganache and licorice snap notes hanging on the finish. Hefty and broad, yet this has cut and energy in reserve. Best from 2035 through 2055. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,500 cases made. - JM (Dec 2018)

"Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and dried flowers plus hints of slate follow through to a full body, very fine tannins and a driven and linear finish. Orange peel and dried fruit. Sleek and racy. Ready to try in 2024." (May 29, 2018)

"This shows fantastic graphite and dark-berry character with black-stone undertones and hints of dried roses. Full-bodied and very tight and precise. Good kick in the end. Love the polished tannins, which are totally folded into the wine. Reminds me of the 1947 Cockburn. Try in 2024." (May 29, 2018)

"Densely packed and dark in profile, with lots of warmed fig, mulled blueberry, açai berry and blackberry paste flavors rolling through, scored with graphite and tar notes, carrying through a finish that has a smoldering feel. A long licorice snap echo adds a lip-smacking hint. A terrific young Port. Best from 2035 through 2055. 1,220 cases made." - JM (Dec 2018)

"This is a superb baby Noval that reminds me of the 1966. Chewy yet so polished. The light sweetness suggests an overall dialing back of the sugar content. Stemmy and lightly green. A truly classic Noval. Almost all from Pinhao. Buy. Better in 2025."(May 2018)

98 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"The 2016 Dow’s Vintage Port is based around the Vinha dos Ecos vineyard behind Bomfim, populated predominantly by mature Touriga Franca vines that were cropped at just 0.68kg per vine. It has a quite astonishing bouquet with layer upon layer of intense black cherry and cassis fruit, touches of clove, leather and a hint of over-ripe Satsuma. This is a mercurial bouquet that keeps changing in the glass, revealing smoky/burning ember scents with time. The palate is quite magnificent – perfectly balanced with a killer thread of acidity slicing through such pure intense black fruit that there is no heaviness at all. There is a sense of thrust on the finish as it fans out with almost careless abandon, a Vintage Port so self-assured that you can only sit back in amazement. Simply one of the best Dow’s ever made." - Neal Martin (June 2018)

99 Points & #27 Top 100 Wines of 2018 - James Suckling:
"Extremely complex aromas that show the classic Graham character of black-fruit marmalade and burnt oranges. Follows through to a full body with great grip at the finish. Lightly sweet. Chewy and powerful. Such a focus at the end." (May 29, 2018)

98 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Showy and vibrant, with stunning, pure waves of açaí berry, blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry confiture flavors spilling forth, barely harnessed by a mouthwatering anise note and a long briary spine. Just as this nearly teeters from its fruit, it's reined in by terrific drive and cut through the extremely long finish, thanks to a wellspring of acidity. Best from 2035 through 2060. 250 cases made." - JM (Dec 2018)
