"The 1985 Grand-Puy-Ducasse is a textbook Pauillac, not a blockbuster in any manner, but a cedary, spicy, fragrant wine with fine depth, a supple texture, some fatness and flesh, as well as a smooth, graceful finish. " Robert parker Bordeaux 1998

Excellent Provenance. These bottles of Fonseca 1985 Vintage Port have been shipped straight from Fonseca's Cellars in Oporto to our cellars in Fordingbridge. They are in perfect condition.
The 1985 Fonseca Vintage Port has a lovely nose of maturing port, finely styled and just screaming quality. The palate carries a svelte texture, with a creamy, flattering character. There is purity, balance, a clean, bright quality and despite this lots of appealing grip. This has great impact, and yet is so welcoming and alluring. Excellent wine, and a great example of the vintage. (November 2006).
Dense ruby/purple with the Oriental spice-box aroma, …

The 1985 Porto Feist Vintage Port is a very nice mature Port wine. It has mature amber/tawny colour. On the nose there are some notes of red berries, coffee and hints of liquorice and ginger. The wine is full-bodied, sweet with notes of roasted coffee, caramel. Resolved tannins and a nice long elegant finish. Very good 90/100 VWP tasting.
This Port House was founded in London by two German cousins H. and C.J. Feist in 1836 and opened up in Oporto 1870. Carl Feist left the management in Porto to his son-in-law J.H. Speich in 1921. Barros took over the house in 1953 and was then bought by Sogevinus in 2006.

"Sandeman is one of the biggest and most conspicuous of the port houses, with extensive interests in the sherry business as well. They advertise significantly and their products are well-represented in virtually every American marketplace. The quality is quite good given the quantity of wine produced...The 1985 has less of a deep-ruby/purple color, but it does offer a spice-box, fruitcake sort of aroma, mildly sweet, medium- to full-bodied flavors, and a ripe, tasty finish. Not a heavyweight, this wine represents a lighter style of vintage port. (1/ 1989) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Elegant and balanced, but a little short on concentration.
