1985 Martinez

1985 Harvey's (Martinez)
Definitely the surprise of the night. Alan described the provenance of this
bottle as 7 years in a garage and 15 years in a kitchen cupboard. Not ideal and fears of "cooking" were in the forefront of the mind. The first surprise was the colour. Bright red with no hint of oxidation or distress. The mouth-feel was quite light but pleasant, not weak. The taste was very sweet and fruity, a beautiful drinking port that is perhaps at its peak. Not a keeper but in no way going down hill. This gave the Malvedos 87 a good run for its money in the drink now stakes, and I think this won the race!
