    Popped and poured. A decent amount of sediment upon decanting. Brownish red in color. Palate of plums, pomegranate, and cassis, with only a little alcohol heat that quickly dissipated. Unmistakable Dow dryness with at best medium sweetness. Very interesting for what it is, a 23 year old LBV that is usually consumed with a couple of years of bottling (in this case, 1997). It’s a very pleasant drink. It would be fun to do a side-by-side with the 1991 Dow vintage port, which I’ll do someday soon.

    Day 2 showed noticeable improvement, with the nose coming on and the palate showing more fruit The sweetness is coming on a little more. The color has also taken on a bit more red. Overall, quite unexpected.
