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 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

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

Mz85. Darkish red, 70% opaque. Nose of bacterial yuck. WPS said corked; AHB said bacterial.
