Dow's Vintage Porto Port Blend 1985

A fine, classic Dow nose with notes of cloves, raisin and a touch of fig...refined and inviting. The palate is sweet and fleshy, again cloves, red-berried fruit, a touch of spice and dates towards the finish. Moderate weight, certainly not and imposing, alcoholic Dow, but refined with great elegance and refinement. Drink now-2035. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Excellent, mature with loads of complexity and depth. Elegance is this wine's best attribute as it cuts a focused line from start to finish, from the nose to the long and fresh finish.

Gorgeous black fruits, layers of complexity and concentration. Could go another decade.

Lisa thanksgiving 2016. A little thin and tannic. Decent nose, but lacked complexity and depth on the palate.

Rich raisins, cassis and toffee flavor. Not overtly sweet for a port 30+
