MWH Wines: This is one of the best 1985's. 1985 was an outstanding year for Vintage Port and ranks with the likes of 1977, 1963 and 1945 in terms of its quality. At its plateau of maturity and with a great future, the 1985 Dow Vintage Port is full, rich, spicy and wonderfully well fruited with a lovely sweetness and texture. A wine to enjoy now or treasure for the future.
