A very youthful deep garnet core with ruby rim. This has a much more precocious nose than the -83 with ripe blackberry, raspberry coulis, black olives and a certain minerality to it. Very fresh and well defined, the palate is full-bodied, certainly more structured and complex than the previous two declarations. Notes of black cherry, fig, raisin with a hint of savoury fruit towards the finish that has great length and refinement. Still in its youth, this has great potential and might be over-shadowed by the ensuing two vintages... Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Depth concentration hint of fruit on the nose long finish does not show its age

A bit sweet on the attack and hot on the finish. Not my favorite. Not a bad port but I'd take Dow's 85 over this in a heartbeat.

Still youthful (even after 12 hours in the decanter), ripe, plummy fruit, big structure, firm yet moderately sweet, long finish, very fine Porto.

Initial spores of what smells like glue, disapears quickly. Typical for 85?
