Jancis Robinson Author: Julia Harding MW

First bottle: Much less deeply coloured than the Graham’s and also a little floral but more geranium than violet. Red-cherry fruit, lifted. Tannins are more silky and overall more elegant than the Graham’s but less richness.Second bottle is darker and denser. And more pure fruit. Tannns are firmer, much more upright and a much better framework. (JH)

Medium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try.

For The Love of Port Author: Roy Hersh Issue: Issue 32

Dark cranberry color showing youthful vibrant color. I had this last week and it was nowhere near this good. Light-medium weight, juicy and spicy with vibrant young fruit. The nose is filled with fragrant floral and ripe red berry fruit. It is showing a bit light, which is typical of this Port …yet harmonious and on this day, it outclasses the 1983. In possession of an early maturing style and it’s quite approachable today, with a medium length finish. Consume it sooner rather than later, certainly by 2020.

Buying Guide - 2nd Edition (1989) Author: Robert Parker

This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. Their tawnys are also among the very best, though somewhat expensive. Two bottles of the 1985 were tasted and each was different. One was compact and dull, the other beefy, rich, full-bodied, and loaded. While the better bottle clearly was outstanding, it was not as sublime or as sensational as one expects Taylor to be, and not as rich or as profound as the 1983, 1977 or 1970. Perhaps this particular port, usually one of my favorites, is going through an awkward stage. Judgment reserved.
