M85 Many people thought flawed. Not as bad as the MG or Noval for me, and surprisingly poor in comparison with the Harvey's. 86 points

Bottled under the Martinez label. Mature red, 50% opaque. Burnt matches and black treacle on the nose, not attractive. Foul in the mouth. Bacterially spoiled? Not rated.
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

50% opacity, orange brown. Slightly sour nose, stewed. Not good on the palate. Possibly VA? Some kind of fault present.
