1985 Martinez

Post by Alex Bridgeman » 13:47 Sat 04 Nov 2017

Tasted at a Blind Emergency on 1st August 2017.

Warm brick colour, 50% opaque. Delicious warm fruit on the nose, baked rapberries which smell delicious and slightly spiced. Sweet, fruity and slightly caramelised on entry. Lots of fruit on the mid-palate, fruit which is ripe and mature. A wonderful texture which is slightly thick. Fruity yet also flowery and full of licorice on the finish. A great length and a great finish. This is one of the best bottles of Martinez 1985 I have ever tasted: fragrant, elegant and delightful drinking. 93/100. 01-Aug-17.
