1985 Graham's. Gman, too young yet? Not a lot of experience with vintage port.
it's a fine port
bit sweet for me =)
the grahams 85 and the fonseca 85 are two ports i like to intro beginner port drinkers on how a 30 year old port can just taste so youthful
Going to have it decanted for a a couple hours before the US v Ecuador game for some other novice vp drinkers. Have some '85 Dow's, Graham's, Fonseca's and Croft. Would one of the other houses be a better port lesson tomorrow?
Wow, wish I was gonna be there! G-Man is right, Graham is one of the sweetest ports while Dow is one of the driest, if a port can be considered dry. Haven't had an 85 for a while but all should be mature. Be sure to decant them all for a few hours before drinking.
If you were going to drop one of those 4 I'd suggest it be the Croft, because it is also sweet and so more similar to the Graham than the other two. And because Croft is my favourite and I've never had an 85, so if I ever get to Rapid City you can share it with me!
