Smith Woodhouse, Port, Portugal, DOC, 1985 Smith Woodhouse, Port, Portugal, DOC, 1985 Smith Woodhouse, Port, Portugal, DOC, 1985 Smith Woodhouse, Port, Portugal, DOC, 1985


My experience with Smith-Woodhouse is limited. Is the 1985 the sleeper of the vintage? An astonishing amount of creamy, black-cherry and chocolate-scented fruit fills the nose. On the palate, this full-bodied wine is loaded with extract, great length, and has super finish with plenty of fruit and tannin in proper balance.
Wine Advocate

I have tasted this blind with all the other big-name 85s and it often holds its own. Medium deep ruby, with lovely violet aromas, full-bodied, with plenty of grip, full tannins and a powerful finish.
Wine Spectator

Deep ruby. Fruit gums nose. Quite simple, easy and ordinary. Nothing to object to but nothing to set the pulse racing either. Chewy, grainy finish. Sweet and hot on the finish. Quite insistent tannins.
Jancis Robinson MW

This bottle has been stored in a Eurocave. There is a tear to the front label but otherwise is in good condition.
