"Dark opaque garnet with a slightly lighter ruby edge. Mocha, cherry berry and kirsch with some slight heat, due to being opened just prior to dinner. A lovely Vintage Port and a really well-made Dow. Unctuous from the very first sip and this would have improved dramatically with more time open. Nonetheless, it was showing great focus and concentrated flavors of blackberry preserves and cassis. Rich, mouthfilling, young and tannic at this stage, but nothing eight hours of decant time wouldn't have rounded out. This has three more decades of delivering the goods. Long and dry aftertaste that's showing plenty of grip. One of my favorite 1985 Vintage Ports."
