4.0 out of 5 stars Great Xmas gift
It was a gift. The recipient was over the moon. Not knowing the first thing about port, I read through lots info and found this sounded the best.

2.0 out of 5 stars caveat emptor
I thought this was rather surprising: 1985 vintage port, albeit from an unknow shipper, for under £30. The cork is crumbling as you'd expect from any vintage port of this age unless re-corked and the colour more like tawny than vintage. It decants quite cleanly though you will need a funnel to catch fragments of cork. but the wine is unbalanced, all spirit and caramel...

Frankly Tesco's 1994 vintage port (probably Quarles Harris?) is better at £20 and with its new cork (when it lost its original name) it will be good for up to another 10 years I'd say.

Okay, so we bought another bottle to be absolutely sure. Maybe it's just a combination of the cooler autumnal weather and that we let the bottle settle for a few days after the flight home. Either way it tasted better than our previous one this summer. The previous one wasn't unpleasant per se, just a bit volatile. This one seemed more rounded.
