Med + concentration with a light purple core and a brownish rim. The nose was young with med + intensity and complexity. The fruit was driven by stewed and dried black fruit accompanied by sweet spices, nuts, chocolate, and orange. Tannins were present along with low acid and balanced alcohol. The #port felt young and well concentrated. There was more red fruit along with a floral component on the palate. Great length. #dows #vintageport #portugal #oporto #touriganacional #ctbucklinwine

A good night for port. Feels as if it could snow, and we hardly ever get snow here. The Dow is sweet. But it doesn't have enough tannic grip to frame the sweetness. Typical '85 port. Not complaining; happy to be drinking it.
