1985 Martinez

Post by AHB » 09:58 Wed 12 Nov 2014

Deep red, 80% opaque. Looking to be in early maturity. Pleasant, fruity nose although a little subdued. Robust and vigorous on the palate with generous levels of fruit initially and a nice tannic support. A little lacking in complexity. Very enjoyable fruity finish and good length. A very well made port for easy and pleasant drinking. 87/100. Drunk 27-Sep-14. Decanted 24 hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
