1985 Quinta da Romaneira

Post by AHB » 23:30 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Brick red in colour, looking to be fully mature. Slightly stale on the nose, stewed. Very hollow and empty, little coming through other than a bit of rhubarb and burnt sugar. The aftertaste is modest and shows the wine to be fully mature, lasting a good time. A tired wine, at the start of its decline. 81/100. Drunk 26 June 2009.
