Fonseca Vintage Port, 1985

Rich damson aromas with smoke too. Chocolate and toffee lead to a palate that is quite muted – there is a bit of damson jam and then the alcohol surge melts away to reveal super floral flavours. There is a dusty spice (paprika?) on the finish with cigar smoke. Fabulous. 95pts (Dec 2015)
