1985 Fonseca Vintage Port Reviews



93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The 1985 Fonseca is still youthful in appearance with hardly any ageing on the rim. The nose offers kirsch, sloes and Christmas cake. With time, there are subtle notes of dried fig and dates beginning to emerge and add to the complexity. The palate is medium-bodied and beautifully balanced on the supple, rounded entry. It is not quite as complex as the aromatics, with dates and dried fig, the finish mellow and refined. It is very elegant for a Fonseca, weighty but supremely well focused. This is a fabulous Fonseca that is ready to drink now, but will age for another 30 or 40 years.”


93 Pointz Wine Spectator


“Very dark and youthful ruby-purple. Very intense aromas of blackberry and black licorice. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with chewy tannins and a rich licorice, blackberry undertone. Still tight.”

91 Pointz Decanter


“The best wine from a difficult decade for Port. Still youthful on the nose; gently perfumed floral character. Sweet, fleshy palate with gentle, berry fruit backed by peppery tannic grip. Dry finish.”



17.5/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Deep garnet colour. Leathery ripeness dominates the nose, which is smoky and lightly gamey. The fruit still has excellent presence on both nose and palate, but the spice-box notes now overtake the fresher fruit tones. The sweetness is perfectly measured, rounding the edges and softening the tannins. More leather, clove, and nutmeg linger on a very long finish. Ready, but with a long life ahead.”
