As always, Taylor's 1985 is among the very best wines of the vintage, with a complex, dense palate which is still evolving and will continue to develop for a further 5 to 20 years. This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades.
