Description

A bottle of Dow's 1985 Vintage Port, bottled in 1987.

'a gorgeous, very pure bouquet with mulberry, leather, terracotta tiles on a warm day, and hints of clove all beautifully defined. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannin, lightly spiced on the entry, touches of liquorice and black pepper, curry powder and ginger with a very harmonious and long finish. This may well be the pick of the 1985 declarations and appears to have edged past the Taylor Fladgate 1985 in recent years. Tasted at the 'Big Fortified Tasting' in London.' Neal Martin, Vinous, June 2018

This Dow's 1985 Vintage Port sold at our online auction for £60
