1985 Dows Vintage Port Reviews

93 Pointz James Suckling

“Aromas of walnuts, dried fruit, and raisins. Surprisingly rich and powerful. Yet medium-bodied now. Concludes with a nutty finish. Beautiful.”

93 Pointz Vinous

“The 1985 Dow’s Vintage Port has a gorgeous, very pure bouquet with mulberry, leather, terracotta tiles on a warm day, and hints of clove all beautifully defined. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannin, lightly spiced on the entry, touches of liquorice and black pepper, curry powder, and ginger with a very harmonious and long finish. This may well be the pick of the 1985 declarations and appears to have edged past the Taylor Fladgate 1985 in recent years.”

Bonus Reviews

United Kingdom

18.5/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine

“Saturated black-garnet. Rich, broad, and deep nose of fig, prune, dried blackberries, and spice, with an overtone of schisty minerality. Voluptuous and rich, with all the depth of crème de cassis to match the still-firm, fine tannins. A beauty of a 1985, built to last.”
