1985 was 1 of the 36 declared vintages of the past 100 years by the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto - one of the best actually which they describe as “exceptional quality...a classic vintage, harvested under perfect conditions” Fonseca stepped to it delivering a wonderful that after 30+ years still is powerful yet has integrated any alcohol heat

My favorite '85. Delicious fruitcake flavors, and rich. But the really great ports I've had don't come across as rich. They have concentration, yes, but an expansiveness that's impossible for a rich wine.
