As always, Taylor's 1985 is among the very best wines of the vintage, with a complex, dense palate which is still evolving and will continue to develop for a further 5 to 20 years. This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young.
WINE SPECTATOR (Jun 2008) 93 points: 'Medium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This 1985 Port vintage is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try.'
