F85, brought by Rob on behalf of one of his guests. Dark dark red. Nose had prunes I wondered whether Vesuvio. Palate of mid weight, with these young prunes showing lightly. The weight made me think a mature port; the prunes gave a sensation of youth. Unbalanced. Fonseca 1985 will come good, but it isn’t there right now.

Readers are referred to the F85 discussion in the review thread, it starting at post 6.
