96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is the undisputed star and kingpin of the 1985 vintage ports. Yes, it is made in a sweeter style than the other ports, but it is a fabulous wine because of a dazzling level of black-cherry fruit, an enormous structure, and staggering depth, dimension, and length. (RP)" (01/1989) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark color, with intense aromas of blackberry, licorice and hints of flowers. Full-bodied, lightly sweet, with superrefined tannins. Long and caressing. Very youthful. Will improve for a long time. This...

1985 Angélus, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
Jancis Robinson: "De Boüard’s first vintage, and already aged on the lees. Sweet and rather gorgeous and with some freshness. Kerpow! There is a bit of decay but also liquorice." (11/2011) Wine Spectator: "Very concentrated, with plum and cassis character and a hint of nuts. It's full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and loads of coffee and fruit on the finish. Better after 1996." (10/1994)

96 points Decanter: "A troublesome vintage for many shippers, but Fonseca 1985 never fails to impress: tight-knit, dense and minty with a core of concentration and pure berry fruit. Succulent, wonderfully fresh and vibrant at 30 years old. Peacock’s tail of a finish. A real ‘wow’ of a wine that promises to last a lifetime. (RM)" (11/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Fonseca is still youthful in appearance with hardly any ageing on the rim. The nose offers kirsch, sloes and Christmas cake. With time, there are subtle notes of drie...

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of walnuts, dried fruit and raisins. Surprisingly rich and powerful. Yet medium-bodied now. Concludes with a nutty finish. Beautiful. Drink now." (01/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 1985 Dow’s Vintage Port has a gorgeous, very pure bouquet with mulberry, leather, terracotta tiles on a warm day, and hints of clove all beautifully defined. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannin, lightly spiced on the entry, touches of liquorice and black pepper, curry powder and ginger with a very harmonious and long finish. Th...

92 points Vinous: "Good full medium red, with faint amber at the edge. Pungent scents of raspberry, spices, cedar and eucalyptus. A distinctly penetrating, high-acid style with noteworthy clarity and energy to its floral flavors of berries, dark cherry and loam complicated by a touch of molasses and an obvious oak component. This soil-driven midweight, the product of a long, cool growing season, finishes with a sneaky building whiplash of flavor, with a slight dry edge suggesting energetic extraction. Classic older-style Georges de Latour. (ST)" (04/2019...

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Bruno Giacosa "Villero di Castiglione Faletto" Barolo (94JG). John Gilman: "I should really be trying to leave alone my last handful of bottles of the beautiful 1985 Villero from Bruno Giacosa, but it always tempts when I am down in the cellar. This most recent bottle was outstanding, but perhaps showing a tad younger than the previous example and the wine is still clearly in climbing mode and a few years away from its true apogee. The bouquet delivers a very fine blend of cherries, gentle tariness, a nice touch of beef broth, woodsmoke, roasted gamebird and a distinct topnote of anise. On the palate the wine is deep, full and rock solid at the core, with a suave attack, the sappy sweetness of fruit of a maturing Giacosa Barolo, moderate, slowly melting tannins, outstanding focus and grip and a very long, perfectly balanced finish. A classic, masculine style of Barolo with many, many years of great drinking still ahead of it. 94+" (01/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Ridge Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon. Ridge Vineyards wines are a staff favorite, possibly because many of our Redwood City staff used to work at Ridge, but mostly because these are stellar wines that age superbly, compare well with much higher-priced Bordeaux and Napa wines, and come from a winery with a stellar reputation. This bottle won't be here long. From the winery's archives: "Ridge is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains Viticultural Area overlooking San Francisco Bay. Along these foothills, in the mid-19th century, French settlers planted the first Cabernet vines in California. The climate and soils have proved ideal for the varietal. In the fine 1985 vintage, the oak contributes to the spicy fruit typical of this cool appellation. The tannins in this excellent wine are firm but balanced, and will soften considerably in the first year or two after release."

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1985 Ridge Vineyards "Jimsomare" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon. Jimsomare vineyard is one of the two major plantings on Monte Bello Ridge, which sits at 2,300 feet in the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking the San Francisco Bay. Long a source of excellent Cabernet, it produced wines that took home several gold medals at Paris Expositions in the 1890s. In the early 1970s, it was replanted to Cabernet and has since been known for consistently intense, deep wines that develop complexity over time. From the winery's archives: "There are two major plantings on Monte Bello Ridge-our estate vineyard, and the Jimsomare vineyard from which this wine is made. Superb cabernets are not new to Jimsomare-in the 1890s they took several gold medals at the Paris Expositions. In the early 1970s, Jimsomare was again planted to Cabernet. By 1984, the vines were ten years old, and beginning to produce consistently intense wines. This excellent Cabernet will be accessible

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Domaine Ponsot Clos De La Roche Cuvée Vieilles Vignes (98RP, 95BH, 95JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The irregular Ponsot estate turned out a great portfolio of 1985s, the finest of which is the Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes. There is no color degradation in this saturated dark ruby-colored 1985. The spectacular aromatics display scents of caramel, blackberry and cherry fruit, smoke, dried herbs, and leather. Fleshy and succulent, with an expansive, chewy texture, outstanding purity, and a long, lusty finish, this is a terrific example from Ponsot. It should drink well for 10-12 years, perhaps longer. (RP)" (02/2002)

Bid on this 6L-bottle of 1985 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (6L) (OWC - 90RP, 90ST, 90WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Lafite is revealing more class and complexity than I predicted. A moderately intense, cedary, woody, herb and berry-scented bouquet is attractive. The wine is open-knit and ripe, with fine tannins, sweet, medium-bodied, mineral, and cassis-scented flavors, fine depth, and a graceful, harmonious feel. It is beginning to blossom and appears to possess more depth and character than I had thought. (RP)" (08/1993)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Ridge Vineyards "Langtry Road" Spring Mountain Claret. Not your usual "claret": this wine is 57% Zinfandel, 33% Petite Sirah, 10% Carignan. From a one-hundred-year-old vineyard in Napa, only 22 barrels produced. Ridge Vineyards was founded in 1962, though the history of the Monte Bello vineyard and winery dates back to the 1880s. Paul Draper, who joined Ridge in 1969, is one of the world's most celebrated winemakers. His awards include the Decanter Man of the Year (2000), COPIA Award for winemaking (2004), and the James Beard Award (2007). In 2015, a Decanter Magazine poll of his peers voted him in the top five most admired winemakers in the world. The winemaking for Ridge combines old-school techniques using native yeasts and avoiding filtration. While Ridge is best known for its Cabernet, they are also well known for their range of Zinfandel wines and Zinfandel-based blends. Praise for Ridge's cellar classics from the 1980s by Antonio Galloni: "It’s a

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Inglenook Napa Valley Vintage Port. "The property once known as Inglenook isn't simply important in Napa Valley history—it's as close as Napa gets to hallowed ground, a spot that encompasses nearly the valley's entire wine history," wrote Jon Bonné in the San Francisco Chronicle in January 2013.

Bid on this bottle of 1985 DRC Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru (94JG, 94RP, 94WS, 93BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This offering has an absolutely glorious nose of oriental spices, sweet black fruits, smoke, and earth. In the mouth, it is opulent and rich, with super-ripe fruit and a silky texture. This fabulous wine is showing even better than I would have thought. (RP)" (04/1992)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Vaucrains" (94RP, 93JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Chevillon “Vaucrains” vertical in London. One of the standout wine at the vertical, this has an irresistible, fragrant bouquet with mulberry, Girolles, Earl Grey and wild hedgerow: wonderful definition and vigour here, surprisingly youthful to boot. The palate is medium-bodied with that fleshy texture typical of the vintage, but it has certainly lasted a lot better than its contemporaries. Very fine by rigid tannins lend this a solid framework to play with, whilst the finish is punchy and feisty. Superb! Tasted January 2011. (NM, Wine Journal)" (01/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Coufran, Haut-Médoc. According to the Wine Spectator: "Tight and firm with a rich cedary overlay dominating the earthy plum and tobacco flavors. Flavors are reigned in and it's nicely balanced." (06/88)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 La Maison Rouget Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Beaumonts" (93BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "While there is the initial hints of bricking, the nose is still quite fresh with pretty spice, stone and secondary fruit aromas leading to rich, detailed and equally mineral-driven middle weight flavors that culminate in a focused, delicious, mouth coating and impressively lingering finish. I very much like the underlying sense of harmony and overall balance and unlike many '85s that are tiring today, this is going to be with us for years to come." (10/2010)
