Vintage Port Blend 1985

1985 vintage. Hadn't tasted in approx 25 years. Still super youthful with plenty of grip/punch yet also showing a bit of age with soft softer tones/nuances. Feel like the Eighties Port vintages got overlooked between the massive/monolithic Seventies offerings and the "100 pointer" Nineties. More affordable than either decade. 6.3.23. — 4 days ago

Vintage Porto 1994


Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Full bodied with high acidity to balance the sugars.

Sweet on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing blackberries, black currants, cooked raisins, cedar, spices, vanilla, licorice, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, light earth and herbs.

Long finish with cherries.

This is a gorgeous sweet wine from Portugal. Rich with great balance and a soft mouthfeel.

The 1994 vintage was an exceptional vintage, so I was very excited to try it when I saw it on the wine list.

Smells very young, although it smelled a little oxidized right out of the bottle, which went away after 20 minutes of airtime.

Drinking beautifully now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Fourme d'Ambert blue cheese. So nicely paired, tasty and decadent.

A great experience to try these kind of wines from special vintages.

20% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

Colheita Porto Port Blend 2011

Always awesome! Drank over the last year. I think these need like 30+ years of age for prime drinking. The ‘78 is still the best vintage I had by far. — 25 days ago
