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 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!

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.
