1985 Graham's Vintage Port

SKU #980028 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Probably the best wine from a good, ripe though rather variable vintage: still deep at the centre with a thin tawny rim; lovely ripe plummy aromas, open but still brooding with more to reveal; ripe and fleshy on the palate with glorious plum and cherry fruit backed by firm ripe tannins leading to a powerful finish. Ready to drink now and will keep and develop in bottle for another thirty years at least! (RM) Inner quote mark (9/2021)

96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (1/1989)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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 is really excellent. Always has been. Just starting to come around. Inner quote mark (2/2008)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of violets, dried fruits and figs. Full body, medium sweet, beautiful tannins and length. Seems to be growing in depth and intensity. Beautiful now. I love the tannin tension to this. Inner quote mark (3/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep garnet. A touch of spirit alongside lifted floral notes, with smoky minerality and underlying red fruit. Rich, sweet, full bodied and silky. Long, Christmas-cake finish, though the alcohol is again evident, taking this away from being in the top flight. 17.5/20 points (TJ) Inner quote mark (2/2021)
