Gould Campbell Vintage Port, Portugal, 1985
Gould Campbell is part of the Symington Family Estates group.
"Thrown in as a nice little bonus. Ruby red colour and gorgeous chocolate, sweet, fudge nose. Quite a blast of raw alcohol on the palate before rich and luscious sweet fruit takes over. Broad tannins dominate the finish, and again it is rather grapey. Good, rather than great."
87/100 points, Tom Cannavan, tasted in 1997
"The 1985 is one of the surprises of the vintage. It has an intense nose of chocolate, berry fruit, and tar. On the palate, the wine is concentrated, powerful, and full-bodied with layers of fruit. It finishes sweeter than some of the other ports with a great deal of tannin."
89/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr, Wine Advocate, January 1989
