1985 Martinez vintage port

Post by AHB » 18:04 Sat 29 May 2010

Mid red colour, showing young maturity. Very restrained nose, with nothing much more than some dusty redcurrants. Sweet, balanced and elegant, showing early maturity. Quite dry but with good levels of fruit. Dry finish, with plenty of fruit and a very good length of very good volume. A nice wine - one to try again in 5 years time. 87/100. Drunk 26 May 2010 after 24 hours decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
