According to Wine Spectator - "Simple, plummy, peppery, fruitcake aromas and flavors, medium body and sweetness and fruity finish."
Winemakers Notes - "Dow’s Fine Tawny is a three-year-old blend aged in small oak casks at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. The barrel ageing produces a smoother and lighter style of wine than the Dow’s Ruby which is aged primarily in large oak vats and tonels. Dow’s Tawny combines subtle fruit with delicious velvety nutty flavours derived from the cask ageing. It is ready to drink and enjoy when bottled and does not require further ageing." 19% ABV.
