Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

1. Spicy-rich nose with chocolate notes. Silken entry, then this coats the palate in rich, chunky, ripe tannins that are pretty well subjugated by the hugely concentrated fruit. This is backward and intense and full of delicious black plum fruit. 2. Smoky aspects to the nose have developed. Nutty, medium weight port, but this gains in intensity in the mouth. Very long, with smoke again at the finish. 3. Floral nose including tobacco and spice and plum aromas In the mouth, supple, medium weight, with medium sweetness. Nice grip. Fresh at the end. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
