“Just 303 bottles released by Dow’s Port for the first and only time. An irreplaceable wine in rare and unique 2.1 litre ‘Tappit Hen’ bottles. Each Tappit bottle has been hand-labelled and each numbered back label has been personally signed by Paul Symington.” Producer’s Notes

“For Port aficionados, few vintages equal the grandeur and quality of 1977. Sure, there are time-honoured vintages such as 1963, 1945 and 1927, but most people consider 1977 to be the modern classic…now 30 years later, it’s time to enjoy them – if you haven’t already.” 94 points, James Suckling

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
