1985 Vintage Port Description ...
The Dow's 1985 Vintage Port is an excellent vintage port that will continue to drink for decades to come and the vintage was the first all-round vintage declared since 1975. The majority of the fruit was sourced from Dow's very own vineyards, Quinta do Bomfim and Senhora da Ribeira, located in the sub-regions of Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The harvest session in 1985 was very wet, followed by a late spring and a very hot dry summer, with harvest occurring mid to late September. The resulting vintage port, bottled in 1987 is robust and will age beautifully for years to come.

"Now 29 years old Dow's 1985 Vintage has a soft red garnet colour. The nose is packed with rich and complex aromas of mature red and dark fruits combined with Dow's hallmark peppery spice and tight focus. On the palate excellent red fruit flavours with rounded silky tannins lead to a long slightly drier finish. Lovely now but will continue to age beautifully for many years."
